EYFS Book Talk Examples

Each child in Early Years (Reception and Nursery) will have a daily Read Write Inc. Phonics lesson for at least 30 mins.  This covers phonics, word reading, fluency and comprehension skills.  This is our main taught reading lesson each day: for more information, see our dedicated RWI page. 


We also want our children to share stories and to love books - this is where 'book talk' comes in.  During a book talk session, the children will listen to a series of high quality, well-loved children's books.  Using our carefully planned questions, we promote discussion of the setting, charcaters, plot and vocabulary.
