Early reading

At Preston we foster an early love of reading from the beginning of the child's learning journey with us.  


Children are provided with daily opportunities for speaking and listening. We encourage children to talk and listen through positive reading experiences.  Our children develop a broad vocabulary through exposure to a broad range of stories, poems and discussion opportunities; this develops children's comprehension skills and promotes opportunities for deeper thinking and questioning.


Children develop a love of reading through:

  • Daily story times with a focus of repetition and opportunities to revisit parts of the texts.
  • A range of stories and texts that reflect their own lives and experiences.
  • Select a range of texts with rich and challenging vocabulary to develop children's understanding of language and promote empathy.
  • Carefully selected books that promote discussion and opportunities for cross-curricular links.
  • Teachers take time to learn about new releases and select books that reflect our children's interests.
