Reading Packs !
In Foundation Stage we encourage children to take a reading book home each week. This can be read by an adult and children can join in with the words and talk about what is happening in the story and pictures. Red Ladybirds and Blue Dolphins will also bring home a reading book each week which is for them to read to parents and carers.
Books are changed at some point during the week.
Please bring reading packs in every day.
