Reading is an important skill to acquire, opening the door to future learning and success. At Larkrise, we are passionate about supporting all children to develop a love of reading books. We are currently developing our classrooms to ensure they have a wonderful calm book area with carefully chosen books and props to support reading. We also have books strategically placed throughout the school, and if children are not interested in coming to the book area for a story, we bring the books to them! In this way, children soon learn to appreciate the magic of books. These books are regularly changed to the children’s interests and learning needs. Each child will have the opportunity daily to enjoy stories in groups and individually with adults. Children then learn to “read” books, retelling the stories as they revisit their favourite books.
This page will be updated with examples of our new book corners ready for Spring Term 2022/2023.
