Sharing Stories

Sunday 19 May 2019

Last week, the year 5 children read with us each day. It was lovely to share our love of reading. The children were able to sit in small groups and listen to a variety of stories.

Listening to stories is a vital part of your child’s development as it sparks their imagination and stimulates curiosity. In Literacy and during our Stop and Read time we have enjoyed lots of familiar traditional stories. We encourage the children to use narrative language to re-tell their favourite stories. We have also modelled changing parts of stories (the characters, setting or events) to encourage the children to add their own twist.

Challenge – 3 cubes

Can your child re-tell their favourite story? Can they use narrative language? Can they change part of the story?

Please email any quotes from your child. This will support us in our assessment by providing evidence towards the Speaking strand of the EYFS.

They develop their own narratives and explanations by
connecting ideas or events.
