World Book Day 2021

This year we couldn’t invite parents in to nursery to read stories so we invited them to read to us remotely! Some were able to join us live for a Google Meet and some shared videos of themselves reading with us. A huge “Thank you!” to all our storytellers.

Zachary’s mum read a story about dinosaurs.
Sorley’s grandad read a story about pirates.
We heard a Supertato story from Sam’s mum.
…and a Kipper story with a very bright torch.
Luke’s mum told us the story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea – which was written before Mrs Husbands was born!
Evie’s mum read another of our favourite stories Whatever Next
There was a tired unicorn in Lacey’s mum’s story.
Everyone joined in shouting “There’s a shark in the park!” with Alistair’s dad.
Mrs Brown used puppets to tell the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

All the children will receive a World Book Day voucher to spend – find out more in this fun song… how many stories to you recognise?

You might like to listen to Lydia Monks read What the Ladybird Heard in a video she recorded for World Book Day.

Sharing books and stories together is a valuable learning experience for your child. This document gives some advice on ways to get the most out of reading together.

World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day this week. We dressed as our favourite storybook character and shared our books in nursery. We invited parents and carers in to share stories with us and we used the internet to hear authors retelling their stories. World Book Day inspired us to write, draw and paint.

Michael Rosen-We are going on a Bear Hunt
Miss McCallum’s Giraffes Can’t Dance costume inspired our painters.
Orla and Miss Cunningham were both tigers who came to tea!
Anna’s Gran read Peace at Last by Jill Murphy.

 

Are you a picture book fanatic?

Due to the success of our recent reading workshop and at the suggestion of one of our parents, Mrs Buchanan is establishing a picture book group.

All parents and carers are invited to the group where we will discuss aspects of an identified picture book including:

– your experience of the book (maybe its a favourite, maybe you haven’t heard of it before?)

– other titles by the same author

– features of the story including: illustrations, rhyme and conversation starters

– tips and ideas on how to explore the picture book with your child

Our first meeting will be on Tuesday 6th May at 9am and 12.30pm and will last no more than an hour.

On 6th May we will discuss the ‘Alfie’ books by Shirley Hughes, in particular ‘Alfie Gets in First’ (a particular favourite of Mrs Buchanan’s).

Elissa from East Renfrewshire Libraries will also come along on the day to talk about:

– Bookbug sessions

– The Library Challenge

– Her favourite picture books.

If you do not own any ‘Alfie’ books and would like to come along Elissa has ensured there are many copies of ‘Alfie Gets in First’ as well as other stories involving Alfie in Giffnock and Thornliebank libraries. We also have some copies of the books in the nursery that you are welcome to borrow.

If you are unable to borrow a copy before the picture book group meets do not worry – come along anyway!

If you are able to come along just let Mrs Beveridge in the office know (so we can buy enough biscuits!)

We look forward to seeing you there!
