At Longshaw Nursery School we have chosen six ‘core books’ which we want our children to know well by the time they leave nursery. Throughout your child's time at nursery we will re-visit these books again and again. We will be using these books to develop children's language acquisition, supporting language development and increasing children's vocabulary through looking at and talking about the pictures.
We are passionate about children developing a real love of books and through our core texts, children will remember the story, characters and narrative and be able to re-tell them independently.
Our children will learn the books word for word after a while, which will support their journey into early reading and develop their fluency.
