Reception's Shared Reading Library
Twice a week (weather dependent), Reception's Shared Reading Library is put on the Infant playground outside the Reception classroom for parents and children to choose a reading book to take home to share together.
At Tanworth we use cursive handwriting. In our handwriting lessons we say to the children that all of our letters start with a ‘little smile’ … the cursive flick. It is very important that children write the little smile correctly, from left to right. This requires a lot of repetition to learn. We are also focus on the correct pencil hold, calling it our 'crocodile snap'.
