Reading and developing a love of books
At Rye Park Nursery School Centre we a deeply committed to ensuring that our children are well equipped with the skills they need ready for the next stage of their education. We believe that children's language and imaginative skills are greatly developed through their knowledge of nursery rhymes and high quality reading books. We have a wide range of books available in all areas of the school for the children to enjoy these are classified into story and information books. Children may borrow any of these books.
Additionally, we have been developing the use of core reading books in the school.
We have chosen books that are repetitive, predictable and often feature rhyme. This makes it easier for children to join in with so that the experience of reading becomes interactive and the children begin to learn the story as they are read to. We have also selected books that foster the children's interests and help them to gain knowledge of the world around them. Children are quick to have their favourite books and soon become confident early readers able to recite stories word for word.
