Telling my own Story

As many children move towards transition to school in the summer, we have been encouraging children to develop expressive language skills and to describe what they draw or paint. Here is an example of this where two girls made a collage and then told us the story to go along with it. This is just the beginning of imaginative writing and a great place to start. Well done Sara and Chantelle.

Reading Rainbow Gifts

This week, the preschool children and their parents were invited along to listen to a story and do some arts and crafts. The children were introduced to the book ‘The Tobermory Cat’ and made cat masks and puppets with staff from Community Learning.

The children all received a Reading Rainbow bag containing lovely story books to be enjoyed at home and we will follow this up with a trip to the local library next Tuesday.
