"Children in our Early Years experience a reading- and talking-rich curriculum and are immersed in story, rhyme and poetry as well as developing strong phonic knowledge through the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme. Introducing RWI in nursery means that our children move into Reception with the confidence and enthusiasm to succeed on their 'learning to read' journey."
