In the Early Years we love a book! Stories are a part of our daily routine. We enjoy sharing and discussing stories and our opinions about them. We enjoy acting stories out and base a lot of our learning around the books that we love.
The children begin the exciting journey towards reading and writing, learning about letters and the sounds they make. We learn how to blend sounds in order to read and segment the sounds we hear in words in order to have a go at writing them.
ELG 09 Reading
Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.
ELG 10 Writing
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
