We love reading! Alongside reading and retelling stories in the reading area, children try to find different things in their books. You could try some of these ideas at home; they are great for early readers! Ask children if they can find a word in their book and ‘put it in their window’. The children use their fingers as their windows and frame what they find. We do this with words, sentences, different punctuation or certain sounds or tricky words that we have been practising. Give it a try!



In Reception we love singing songs to help us with our phonics. Here are some of our favourites!





We love using Numberblocks to help us with our number recognition.
