Reading and Language Development

We use the 'Read, Write, Inc' programme of phonics to teach children to read.  This approach teaches children the sounds that each letter or set of letters represent.  It then teaches children to 'blend' these letter sounds together to read words.  


During the first term of Nursery we will share more information with parents about how the scheme works and what parents can do to support their children's reading at home. 

We want all of our children to love books and stories.  We are lucky enough to have our very own EYFS library where children and parents are welcome to loan books to share at home.  As part of the 1000 Stories initiative developed by Walsall Council we offer tips to parents about sharing stories with their children and suggestions about how books can be used to aid language development.
