The Reading Zoo

Welcome to our reading zoo! 

In Reception we love reading and want the children to have their own love for reading. We have a range of books that the children enjoy  and some vocabulary to help them extend their thinking.   

Week 1- How are you feeling today?

Understanding children's emotions is critical to understanding their behaviour. In Reception the children have been exploring their new environment and learning to communicate with their peers. Early years children can feel a range of emotions throughout the day, but can often struggle to express how they may be feeling. We have created a feelings chart to help support their emotions and allow us to address their needs. The children are able to move their photos throughout the day.
