This year in Bluebell class we have been doing some afternoon outreach sessions with parents. We have been focusing on bedtime routines and the importance of reading with your child. This week some of us visited the idea store with our families and staff from the nursery.

We talked about the importance of reading every day and discussed some of the reading strategies we use in nursery. Together we practised talking about the pictures with children, predicting what might happen next and acting out parts of the stories.

It was great to see families so excited about reading with their children! The children enjoyed looking through different books and choosing some to take home and read!
