Promoting Early Reading
Reading is important in Reception...
In Reception at Woodside Academy we value and promote Early reading every day!
We want our children to be ready to read but also have a love of reading. To do this we ensure that the children learn different skills that will allow them to be better readers.
These Early Reading Skills include:
- Playing matching games
-Have awareness of Phonics and are taught Phonics daily
-Language development activities which cover; listening, attention, alliteration and sound discrimination
We love to read!
Throughout the year we promote reading at school with your child.
We have stay and read sessions, where you and you child get to come back to school on an evening in your pyjamas and we give each child a new book that they can keep and take home, we also have hot chocolate and snacks.
During the session you can enjoy the new book with your child and ask the team any questions that you may about your child's reading skills and how to develop them further.
