Reading in Reception

In Reception we recognise the importance of reading. Although it is a tough skill to learn we value and nurture the love of reading. In class we read a range of books throughout the year which help to provoke our learning.

In order to develop a love of reading it is important for reading to be accessed both in school at home, this is why we send home new reading books each week.
