Reading

In Reception we aim to foster a love of reading. Here are some of the ways we support this in school...
- Reading, enjoying and discussing LOTS of different books!
- Reading aloud to the children every day
- Visiting the school library
- Focusing on an 'Author of the Term' 
- Developing storytelling skills through a 'Storytelling focus of the term'
-Encouraging the children to make up and tell their own stories, 'acting out' their stories
Here are some of the ways you can foster a love of reading at home...
- Read, discuss and enjoy books with your child
- Keep reading to your child, even when they begin to read themselves!
- Visit the local library, encourage your child to make their own 'reading choices' - support them to be adventurous in their reading choices 
- Talk about what you like to read, your favourite books/magazines/newspapers/comics
-Read everything! - Chapter books, fiction, non-fiction, magazines, posters, print in the environment, cereal packets....
-Read everywhere! - Read at home, when out and about, take a book with you on a picnic
-Re-tell favourite stories using the pictures of from memory
- Make up your own stories to tell the children
