On Thursday Book Start visited the Nursery. First of all the children heard a story about Alan the crocodile. Then nine parents attended the workshop run by Micki Garvey from Family Learning. The parents made a crocodile puppet to aid in story telling.
They all enjoyed the workshop and some of the comments made by the parents are below:’
‘I really liked the way Mrs. Micki read the story. I learnt a new good way to read the story for my kids. It makes the story sound interesting and exciting.’ – Sana
‘I learnt that eyes are the way of describing someone’s emotions and facial expressions. I realised that reading is an important part of daily lives.’ – Esraa
‘The workshop was excellent and I learned how to draw eyes. I’m grateful for that.’ – Faiza
‘It was enlightening to experience a book being read to a group of children and being read well.’ – Rose
The children all received a pack including the book to take home and enjoy with their parents.
