Learning through play: literacy

Learning to be Superstar Readers

Research has shown that children need to have a thousand books read to them before they become independent readers. We would like all our children to develop into enthusiastic readers when they go to school, as reading skills are really key to doing well in a whole range of areas. We promote literacy throughout our nursery in our play activities, through environmental print, story times, role play, nursery rhymes, games and small world toys..

We have a popular Bedtime Stories library – children can borrow a book every day if they wish- and a collection of lovely storysacks which are available to borrow for a week. Other literacy focused events include Book Swap boxes and Stay and Play days.
