Reading – In nursery, we develop our children’s early literacy skills through the celebration of stories, non-fiction texts and poems.

Children will have access to a huge variety of books in school and share stories on a daily basis.

Read Write Inc.

We follow the Read, Write Inc. approach to teach children the skills needed to read and write. In nursery, we support children to develop listening skills and sound discrimination that will prepare them for the learning of sounds.

Phonics is taught daily and targeted to each child’s individual ability. During the spring and summer terms, we will introduce the children to letters and their sounds through the Read Write Inc. scheme.

Writing – Throughout the year, the children will develop their fine and gross motor skills and begin to mark make.

As children become ready to write, we will teach the specific features and forms of writing e.g. pencil grip and letter formation.
