Our Favourite Stories!


Last week the Sweetpeas were reading all of their favourite stories in celebration of World Book Day.

They all enjoyed babbling and pointing out their favourite characters in the books. Following on from this the children had fun mark making using paint, to decorate stones. We selected a few of their favourite stories to paint onto the stones. This promoted their creativity alongside fine motor skills.

Then the Sweetpeas went for a village walk to hide the stones for others in the community to find. This encouraged the children’s understanding of the outdoor environment. They took turns to choose hiding places for their favourite stones supporting their social skills and strengthening their relationships.

Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
