Reading is our top priority when designing our curriculum so that children can access the whole curriculum offer. Therefore, Nursery children are taught phonological awareness skills in readiness for the teaching of phonics for reading and spelling at the beginning of Reception. A robust and high quality offer in Literacy allows children to systematically build their knowledge of reading, comprehension and writing.


In the revised EYFS Framework, Literacy is broken down in the three Early Learning Goals:

  • Word reading
  • Comprehension
  • Writing
