Big Bedtime is an initiative that we roll out to all 3-5 year old children. The children choose a book to take home each week and read it at home. Before returning their book to nursery the children complete a book review so everyone knows what they liked about the book.
The aim of the Big Bedtime Read is help parents to make reading with their children part of the bedtime routine at least 4 times a week.
Have a look at the display in the hall for more information and to see the children’s book reviews.
Families Connect runs for 8 weeks and provides activities and techniques to support wellbeing, literacy and numeracy that parents and carers can practice at home. The programme aims to build confidence and relationships between parents and carers, children and nursery staff.
Our first every programme started at the beginning of October and as you can see from the photographs the children and the parents are having fun together. They also get lots of resources to take home so they can practice the activities at home.
Shona is our families connect trained member of staff and she is hoping to run another programme next term so watch out for dates and sign up to join the fun.
