Children learn in a print rich environment. They develop their gross and fine motor skills through fun activities such as 'dough disco' and 'squiggle while you wiggle'. Pupils have daily phonics lessons and are encouraged to use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They have continuous access to mark making materials and follow their interests and with support, write simple sentences that can be read by themselves and others. Story telling is a daily event and children often act out stories they have heard within the environment.
