World Book Day in Early Years
Nursery and Reception had a lovely time celebrating World Book Day with an author/illustrator visit from Steve Weatherill - Baby Goz.
In Nursery the children enjoyed a superb story telling session followed by time to share and enjoy a range of Steve's books. Even some of our youngest children were joining in with the repeated refrains and making predictions.
Reception children enjoyed a drawing and storytelling workshop, where they were shown step-by-step methods for drawing characters as they tell their stories. The children had time afterwards to create their own drawings for Steve, which were wonderful representations of Steve's drawings, in particular the Big Bad Wolf!
In the days and week following, the learning continued where children brought their prior knowledge to their play and continued to develop their story-telling and drawing.
