At the start of Reception, we really want the children to learn to love books as they continue to develop their reading skills. Please read with your child as regularly as possible, sharing the books they bring home from school and a bedtime story. Remember our Early Years Library is always there if you want to borrow a book or else the children love a trip to the local library. Don't forget to log onto Active Learn as well to access books linked to your child's phonic ability.
