Reading is fun

We have been reading lots of books in the discovery room. We have been talking about book week and the importance of looking at books. We have discussed how books are full of information for you to learn new things, find out lots of facts and listen to a enjoyable story’s.

We enjoy listening to stories together at group times. We like to join in with the story and guess what happens next? When we read familiar stories we even get to help read along and recall the next part of the book.

We use books in areas of our discovery room, in our cosy area where we can have some time to look at books when we want some quiet time.

At our writing table to help us explore letters, words and an a special interest to inspire our pictures we make.

In our science area where we can explore fun facts and investigate science experiments.

Even in our building/construction area we look at books to help us learn about real life construction.
Books are such an important part of learning. We learn so many important skills from books. What are some of your favourite stories at home?

When I grow up – Book week Scotland

You will have seen from the November Newsletter that next week is Book Week Scotland. As this year’s theme is the future, we ordered a time capsule that we are going to bury in the nursery garden and we’d like all the children in the centre to contribute to this.

After reading “When I Grow Up” The children have drawn a black pen drawing of what they would like to be in the future so we can then add them to the time capsule.

 “I want to be a baker”


“I want to be a doctor”


“I want to be a painter”


“I want to be a princess”
