Phonics & Reading
Shared Reading in Nursery
Each week the children will choose a book to bring home and share with you. Please take time to read this with your child a few times and discuss the characters, where the story is, what's happening in the story and why. Ask questions about their favourite part, how characters are feeling etc.
Reading and the EYFS
Reading, along with writing, makes up literacy, one of the four specific areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Reading's Early Learning Goal is:
- Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.
