In nursery, children move through phase one of the KTC phonics programme. This involves learning how to discriminate between different sounds and identifying the initial sounds in words.
Alongside our discrete phonics teaching, we share books and rhymes regularly and encourage children to talk about what they can see in the illustrations. Throughout the year both fiction and non-fiction books will be placed around the classrooms to support different areas of learning and to encourage a love of reading.
