Reading for pleasure

Classes

Reading is at the heart of our curriculum. We place a strong emphasis on reading for pleasure and have daily opportunities for this in Nursery. We have a book voting station, where every child votes for the story of the day. This is our favourite part of the day, where we unwind with a story together.

We also have our class dog ‘Honey’, who loves a bedtime story! Every week, a child is randomly selected to take Honey home for the weekend. Honey has a bag filled with books and hot chocolates for parents and children to enjoy. This encourages reading for pleasure at home. We love to hear which books the children (and Honey) have enjoyed. 

Our reading corner is cosy and filled with engaging texts which encourages a true love of reading.
