Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write.

Children are given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest.

At Blakeney Preschool we provide a literacy rich environment, with plentiful opportunities for sharing fiction and non-fiction texts, and mark-making both inside and outside, using traditional materials such as pens and pencils, but also brushes and water, or sticks in the sand. Children's early marks are the basis of writing.
