Reading and Rhymes

Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out print. Through hearing stories and rhymes, children are exposed to a rich and wide vocabulary.

Below are some stories read by our Reception team for you and your child to enjoy together. 

Get comfortable, listen to the story and then talk about what happened afterwards, ask your child open ended questions like:

  • What was your favourite part of the story?
  • What was the funniest part?
  • What would you do/how would you feel if that happened to you?

We hope you enjoy these stories...


Mrs Hurley - Peace at last

Mrs Mathews - At the end of a rainbow

Miss Chapman - Some dogs do

Mrs Mason - The man on the moon

Mrs Morris - Growing frogs

Mrs Kitson - Guess how much I love you
