Children develop a disposition to read as stories and books are read to them. They also discuss how texts are structured, how to use book language and learn about the rhythm and expression needed for reading aloud. They see the reader as a role model of reading behaviour. When young children play at reading they imitate what they have seen – turning the pages, looking at the pictures, ‘reading’ the words in that special ‘tone’. As teachers we build on and extend this language play so that children develop a love of books and early reading skills. While the central purpose of reading is to gain meaning from print, children also need to be encouraged to develop a curiosity about words, their sounds, patterns and how they are composed. We need to establish a language-rich environment and model and share reading with the children, demonstrating that it is an active part in the process of constructing meaning.

Come and Read Sessions
Parents are invited to Come and Read with their child every Tuesday. 8:30-9:00am Nursery AM and 2:50pm for Reception and Nursery PM. The teacher models the use of the question bear whilst the support member of staff uses a Chromebook to model how to use Oxford Reading Buddy. During this time teachers model how to promote rich language and vocabulary.
At St. Raphael's, we teach children to read using Read Write Inc. Phonics. This teaches children to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension.
We have put some phonics resources below that are very helpful for reading and writing with your children at home. Please take a look!
We have also put some very handy videos to help you teach phonics at home in our 'Video Resource Centre'. Go to the 'Children' tab, then select 'Video Resource Centre' and see the videos under 'Phonics - Reception'.
Phonics at Home - please use these resources to help support your child at home
