Early Words Together - Autumn Term 2


We have been running a National Literacy Trust initiative in school called The Early Words Together Programme.


A lovely band of parents and carers have joined us on a weekly basis over a six week period to enjoy exploring stories, rhymes and creative activities with their children. It’s been wonderful getting to know them all and discovering their hidden talents – we can see where their children get them from!


Here’s what they’ve been up to!


Week 1

  • introductions – getting to know each other and the things we like
  • making sock puppets



Week 2

  • The Great Ryecroft Bake Off – looking at recipes and related stories
  • making cookies


Week 3

  • Exploring Traditional Tales and Fairy Stories
  • Making our own storyboards and stick puppets to re-tell and make up our own versions of the popular classics


Week 4

  • Visiting the local library - joining the library and exploring the facilities there.
  • Enjoying a library scavenger hunt to win a prize.


Week 5

  • Enjoying rhymes and number action songs
  • Making our own number action glove puppets


Week 6

  • ‘Jump into the Picture!’ – Enjoying drama to bring alive a fun story using hand-made props!
  • Celebrating our achievements by awarding certificates and making book presentations
  • Reviewing the project.


If your child is currently in Foundation Stage 2 and you would like to take part in the next programme, please feel free to have a word with Mrs Sinclair – we’d love to see you!
