EYFS Parent Reading Morning - Wake up and Read Every Friday from 1st October 2021

Wake up and Read is a weekly parent reading session every Friday from 8:35-9:00am in which you and your child can choose a book from our book corner and spend time reading with your child in the Early Years setting.

Reading together at home is one of the most enjoyable and important ways in which parents can support their child. As you share books with each other you are helping improve your child’s reading skills and also showing them how significant and pleasurable reading is. Reading books together, reading to your child, hearing them read, discussing reading techniques, stories, poems and non-fiction texts are all key ways to help your child to become a confident, life-long reader which in turn will have a significant impact on their progress and attainment in all subject areas.


In the EYFS, children are beginning to explore books in a variety of ways. We are beginning to tell stories by looking closely at the pictures and talking about them, and over the next weeks and months children will develop their knowledge of letters and sounds so they are able to sound out simple words and phrases by the end of Reception.
