Event Description Audience - Teachers in Nursery and Reception

Focus: - How to develop a love of reading using stories, rhymes, poems, action songs, pictures, drama at the same time as introducing new vocabulary, having conversations, and developing confidence to explore with letters, words, sounds and actions in a fun and innovative way.

Reading is so important. As adults, we know that, but developing a love of reading in children from an early age will prove so useful in their later life; in fact, enjoying books and reading stories is crucial in the development of a child. Not only does it help with their ability to understand words, but it encourages them to develop their imagination – to see things and imagine things all by themselves – and to develop their speech, it improves concentration and introduces children to new concepts and the world around them.

Early reading ignites creativity, sparks curiosity, and stimulates the imagination in young children. Often, this leads to role-play as children grow which helps to develop other skills such as empathy, problem-solving, and morality.

On this course we will be able to identify the many ways that we can provide opportunities for children to develop their reading skills through exciting daily opportunities at home and in school and how reading can be incorporated into continuous and enhanced provision.
