Virtual Bookstart is spread over four weeks. This programme is designed to support early language skills and to encourage the love of books, stories and rhymes in babies and young children. We will share songs, activities and stories via emails, looking at areas themed around: make time for rhyme, sharing stories and books, making stories come alive and fun with mark making. Free Bookstart and resource packs are delivered to homes to encourage sharing of books together and to bring children’s creative minds to life in the home learning environment. We will make regular contact and guide children and families on their reading journey. Happy reading, singing and rhyming together.
