World Book Day

“We shouldn’t teach great books, we should teach a love of reading.” BF Skinner

To celebrate World Book Day in pre-school we have been sharing lots of our favourite stories and enhancing the areas of our environment to hold and capture the children’s skills of recall, imagination and creativity.

The children have listened to many stories which have been read by pre-school practitioners. We have used expressive vocabulary and facial expressions as well as body movements and props to deliver the stories. This has supported us in making the story come alive for the children, capturing their attention. The children have really enjoyed becoming the storytellers themselves.

Together we have re-enacted the story of Billy Goats Gruff and the Three Bears.

The children have been supported recalling stories as a group and have used masks to help them get into character. The children have repeated lots of familiar phrases and have displayed great confidence by getting up and having a go.

These sessions support our children in having fun with stories, whilst being actively involved and building their literacy, listening and attention skills.
