Encouraging Fearless Learners


We would like you to focus on one book with your child, If they have a favourite book, brilliant! If not find one that they really enjoy reading. Some ideas for lovely books that we love to read are below. If you could read this book with your child weekly and slowly build their understanding of the story, knowledge of the vocabulary and eventually build them up to be able to retell the story themselves without you reading it. 

We will be videoing the children retelling their stories in school so please get started right away! If possible, it would be even better if we could get two books done before your children are all grown up and ready for Reception.


Thank you for all your support and we look forward to hearing the stories your children love to tell.
