ReadingAt least one book is read each day to the children, whether that be for example, before lunch or at the end of the day. We have a system that ensures the same books aren’t left out in the reading area too long, to promote passion and engagement.
Once a week, Reception has a library slot. This time allows the children to choose a book to take home, return the following week to choose another (or keep an extra week if they are really enjoying it!). Our team will also take books out of the library to build on our year’s collection!
Our Early Years Team is extremely passionate about books and reading. We aim to ensure children have a passion for reading, therefore strongly encourage lots of reading at home as well as in our setting. We ensure to support you with this as much as we can.
Unlike other years, MyHappyMind for EYFS is built around sharing and reading books. These are specially written books that have been designed to develop children's understanding of their own mental health and wellbeing. See the MyHappyMind page for more information.
