The Reading Area is a comfortable area in which children have access to stories and puppet characters who have previously been shared in the setting. Children are encouraged to retell stories to friends and use pictures in the books to remind themselves of key characters and events in the story.
Children are given the opportunity to handle books and understand how we take care of books and how we hold them the right way round and turn the pages carefully. Stories which children are able to orally retell influence and can be used in their small world and independent narrative play.
Paper copies of all documents and policies on the website are available from the school office.
