Pre School reading stories
Children sit happily with staff and listen to stories during group time. This contributes towards them developing early reading skills and an interest in books.
All children make good progress and are well prepared for school. For instance, older children learn about phonics and mathematical concepts, such as shapes and numbers. Staff support children well and encourage them to explore their own ideas and develop their critical-thinking skills.
Children make marks with chalks, crayons, water and brushes, feet, hands and fingers as well as spaghetti, gloop and gel. All these sensory and messy activities allow children to practice their writing skills and begin to ascribe meaning to their marks.
