Communication, Language and Literacy

We aim to encourage a love of books and stories in all our children. Parents and teachers work together to help the children in the early stages of independent reading. We provide many opportunities for children to read and write, speak and listen as part of their role play - they write prescriptions for sick animals in the vet's surgery, menus for the Chinese restaurant and shopping lists for the garden centre. They design and make seed packets and write instructions about how to make pet carriers.
