Language & literacy

The children are encouraged to improve their vocabulary by talking with and listening to the staff and each other.  They are encouraged to participate in role play, story times, to learn rhymes and sing songs.

We use the 'letter of the week' to encourage children to learn the name, sound and formation of each letter of the alphabet.  

All children are encouraged to enjoy books and handle them appropriately.

When your child is 3 and a half years old, they will be introduced to our reading scheme - Oxford Reading Tree.

Your child will be given colouring sheets depicting the main characters used in the Oxford Reading Tree books.  They should colour these in and return them to Nursery.
