Learning to blend and segment in Kingfisher class

The children in Pre-School have continuous access to different forms of reading, from books to letter shapes and text displayed around the room. Our children can bring their adults into the classroom on a Wednesday morning to share a book together. We call this ‘Snatchabook’ after the book by Helen Docherty.

The children in Pre-School choose new library books to take home each week. We ask their adults at home to share these books with their child.

These Pre-School children are doing an activity which is linked to The Very Hungry Caterpillar book.

Feed the caterpillar the right food!

Our Pre-School children are enjoying reading lots of Julia Donaldson stories. Look at all the Julia Donaldson book characters we had on World Book Day!

“I am the lizard from Superworm!”
“I am the singing mermaid!”
“I saw a butterfly in Monkey Puzzle!”
I’m stickman, I’m stickman, I’m stickman that’s me
“I’ve got terrible tusks and terrible claws......”
“........And terrible teeth in my terrible jaws”
“I have knobbly knees and turned out toes.....”
“And a poisonous wart at the end of my nose”
“I’ve got purple prickles all over my back”
“I am the singing mermaid”
