Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

Reading

At Nyewood we aim for all children to develop a love of reading; to do this we teach the skills of reading so that children can decode words, talk about texts and be inspired to read.

Below is our EYFS Phonics and Reading Workshop with Miss Wells and Mrs Walker.
