World Book Day 2023
We love to read books everyday at St. Michael's! They are central to our love of learning, they help to develop language & imagination, invite discussions, predict what's next, promotes brain development & also supports our emotional well being.
Books are not just for the book corner, we love to read outside in the garden, in the woods, in the role play area and we often retell traditional tales by acting out the story, by using puppets, Makaton sign language & singing.
Of course dressing up is also a fun way to celebrate books and brings the characters to life. We have had children arrive in pyjamas, cosy clothes and some costumes have been hand made which we absolutely LOVE! Thank you to our families for encouraging the love of books here in nursery. We have book tokens available to take home to spend in some local bookshops.
