Session Description

Early reading is an essential skill that provides children with a head start in all areas of their learning development. Reading ignites creativity, sparks curiosity, and fires up their imaginations, and by nurturing this skill, children create a solid foundation in which they can build on for the rest of their life. Children that begin their ready journey at an early age benefit from having greater general knowledge, a wider range of vocabulary and improved listening and concentration skills.  

At Purposeful Play, we recognise the huge impact that early reading has on young children and have specifically created our StoryTeller classes to develop communication, language and literacy skills through stories, rhymes, singing and a whole host of interactive activities. Each class begins with a new story, following the theme of the term, followed by a number of fun, purposeful activities that strengthen and support the early reading development of each child at their own pace.  

 

All classes

  • support early reading

  • play a crucial role in several prime and specific areas of learning

  • follow the statutory framework for Early Years Foundation Stage providing children with the best start towards great progress throughout school and life. ​

  • promote the development of many fundamental skills.​

Adults play a key role in helping children develop a love of reading and it comes with many benefits. For example, comfort and reassurance, confidence and security, relaxation, happiness and fun.
