In nursery we know how important it is to share books as often as we can. Even though the children might not be reading the words yet it is still so important to read to them regularly, looking at the pictures, telling the story, talking about what they see, thinking about what might happen next. A great way to fit in reading with your child at home every day is to share a story before bedtime. To help us think about the importance of books at bedtime we have had a bit of a competition!
Every day for the last 3 weeks the children have been reading a story before bed and writing it down. Each week there have been special stickers and prizes. For our final week we had a books at bedtime celebration! The children came to school in their pyjamas, we had hot chocolate and biscuits and there was a grand prize draw for the children who had been sharing stories everyday!
Well done to everybody who took part, we hope you continue to enjoy your books at bedtime.
