Early Words Together - 05.03.18


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


We have a lovely band of parents and carers who are joining us on a weekly basis over a six week period to enjoy exploring stories, rhymes and creative activities with their children.



Here is what they have been up to.


Week 1

  • introductions – getting to know each other and the things we like to do

  • making sock puppets, based on the things we like to do


    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

  • A visit to the local library - We joined the library and explored the facilities there.
  • The children took part in 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!
