Early Years - Reception Class

"In Faith and Love, We Learn and Grow." 


In EYFS we want to create the foundations for becoming readers who connect with texts and with others through texts, grow their thinking and their language through reading, become familiar with the language, the structures/patterns and the themes of stories, not just be able to retell them.
