Understand the five key concepts about print:

- print has meaning

- the names of the different parts of a book

- print can have different purposes

- page sequencing

- we read English text from left to right and from top to bottom

- spot and suggest rhymes

- count or clap syllables in a word

- recognise words with the same initial sound, such as money and mother

*Engage in extended conversations about stories, learning new vocabulary.

*Use some of their print and letter knowledge in their early writing. For example: writing a pretend shopping list that starts at the top of the page; writing ‘m’ for mummy
