Reading & Writing
Reading and writing grow from a confidence in speaking, communicating and moving. We foster a love of songs, rhymes, stories and books. Adults read to children often both individually and in groups.
We have designed our environment to give rich opportunities for reading and writing. Children learn to give meaning to marks by exploring print on labels and signs. They enjoy making marks in the sand, using paint and drawing with a variety of media. As they gain confidence, they use their name card to explore the letters of their name.
