Reading is Braw in the Woods!

The Nursery celebrated the launch of the Reading is Braw community project with teddy bears’ picnics in the woods during both the morning and afternoon sessions.  We had some yummy sandwiches and some buns too!  We listened to stories while we were eating our picnic. Mums, dads, grannies, friends, aunties and cousins came along as well!

It is time to begin completing our nursery reading record on the display board in the cloakroom.   Each child has a card with their name on it on the display.   Each time you read a new book with your child, please fill in one of the slips and blu-tak it to your child’s card.  Old slips go in the basket as we are going to create a mega-display with all the books you have read!  You could add a smiley face or sad face depending on whether your child liked the book or not.  You can take a few of the slips to write at home if this is easier.

Please try to read at least one new book each week with your child.  We have had some lovely new books donated to our lending library, or you can visit your local library for an even greater selection.  If you have borrowed a book from the lending library, you could write a review to help others know which books are best!  There are some book review sheets hanging above the library.

Parents/carers are welcome to use the slips to record what they are reading too.  We will display these in a separate space.
