Core Texts

Our EYFS environment makes reading desirable through well presented, hand picked texts being accessible to all children near appealing reading areas and a range of props to use alongside books. Purposeful opportunities to write are available across all areas within the classroom environment.

We plan a variety of opportunities to teach and inspire our children every day with the aim of developing their reading skills and a love of books and reading which will last a lifetime. 


We use different approaches to teach reading from the beginning of their school journey where children are ‘learning to read’ as they move through our school, developing their skills in order to ‘read to learn’.
