Thank you to all the parents who attended Reception’s First Story Café! We Hope you had a wonderful time and learnt a bit about how to further develop your child’s learning!
Please remember the value of stories and how your child can use their imagination in so many ways! Read every day using some techniques seen in class today. We always explain the front cover, author and blurb of the story. We also highlight the names of characters and key events. This helps your child gain knowledge and understanding of story structure. We have been introducing the meaning of prediction. Frequently ask your child questions about what they have read or listened to, and also about what they can see in pictures.
We hope you can use some activities seen today in your own home and when your out and about. Learning can take place wherever you are. And homework is to reinforce the learning that has taken place at school that week. Feel free to extend your child in that area of learning in any way you want. If you are ever stuck for ideas, please approach one of our lovely EYFS team members, we are always happy to help 🙂
We hope you enjoyed your time with us and we will hopefully have another Story Cafe some time in the near future..
Big thanks for your continued support.
