Book Week 2023

We have had a wonderful week celebrating Book Week 2023. Throughout the week, each class had an opportunity to visit Mrs Billington in the library to share in stories and participate in a range of exciting Book Week activities. Last Monday, all children were invited to bring along a favourite story and dress up inspired by something that ‘grows’.

As well as our dress up day and visits to the library, the ELC children have taken part in literacy experiences every day in the ELC to help celebrate Book Week. They have read and viewed the shortlisted books using ‘Storybox’, shared their favourite stories from home with each other, taken part in small world ‘story table’ play, made their own stories using story stones and book-making, listened to audiobooks and much, much more!

“Reading stimulates the imagination and broadens understanding of the world. It extends, speech, language and vocabulary and builds an awareness that ideas and feelings can be expressed in print. Shared reading initiates a lifelong love of reading” EYLF made easy
