Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at Hewish


Little Learners Literacy Workshops held at West Wick – June 2019

We were pleased to welcome families to our first of a series of Literacy Workshops, run by Kim Beynon. All of our Little Learner families are invited to two interactive sessions to learn about how to support their child’s literacy development.  Our aim is to  ensure all Little Learners are exposed to a wide and rich literary experience with ultimate high literacy acquisition.  We expect  that all participating children and families will benefit from an enjoyable shared and sustained thinking experience and hope that families use some of the new skills learned in their children’s home learning experiences.

Week one – Owl Babies

Week two – The Hungry Caterpillar

Week three – Slinky Malinky

Week four – Room on the Broom

Week five – So Much
