Our first “Literacy Development Through Play” session for Under 5 parents was well received and enjoyed by those parents who attended. Parents and Early Years staff were able to share a Bookbug session (action songs and stories), discuss the importance of early literacy skills development and discuss how the school could support Under 5 groups (and parents at home) in promoting literacy.
On the last Wednesday of each month (during term time), from 9.30-10.30am, we will host a Singalong/ Story/ “Sport” session for Under 5s, with input from Early Years staff.
Literacy bags – one to support North Roe U5 session and another to support Ollaberry U5 session – will be available soon. We plan that these will include CDs, a CD player, finger puppets, stretchy material, books and more…
Parents are welcome to borrow books from our Early Years library at any time, as well as accessing “book bags”.
The weather may not have been especially kind, however the spirit and generosity of our school community (and beyond) more than made up for the lack of sunshine.
Music, competitions, raffles, tombolas, plants, coastguard, fire service, poetry, kishie maakin, jewellery making, stampin up, face painting, craft, archery, stilts, unicycles, bouncy castle AND teas – there was something for everyone!
Approximately £1300 raised!!
I have no idea how we are going to top it next year!!
