This area of learning is setting the foundations of your child’s future reading and writing skills. We aim to encourage all children whatever their age to have a love of books by providing fact and fiction books and story sacks.

There are also library books which your child can borrow and take home. We also promote acting out stories, rhyming and phonic activities and mark making which will lead on to formation of letters for early writing.

You can help your child by:

  • Having a cosy time each day sharing books together (even when they are a baby).
  • Tell stories to each other.
  • Encouraging all forms of mark-making
  • When your child starts forming letters ensuring they use lower case letters, except for the beginning of names.
