“A talk-rich, book-based environment is crucial to a child’s development. It supports the ability to understand words, to use imagination and to develop speech. The more that children experience the language-rich environment of quality books and stories, the more they will gain an interest and passion for them” Jo Gray
The new Ofsted framework places a high focus on reading with phonics being the route to becoming a successful reader. Undoubtedly, phonics is a crucial aspect of the Year R daily routine, but how can we simultaneously foster within children and parents, a love for reading. This workshop will explore how we can embed effective phonics and create meaningful opportunities for reading in the environment.
By the end of this workshop you will:
- Know how to create a reading and talk rich environment
- Be able to ensure children can apply their phonological skills in your environment
- Be inspired to engage and stimulate children's reading behaviours positively
