Reception Destination Reader
For our reading workshop we have 3 variations of groups, showing how we can make reading exciting, engaging and providing children with great comprehension skills.
Drama/re-telling the story: The children and their families were acting out the story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. They were becoming the characters and were re-telling the adventures through drama. This allowed the children to order the story.
Telling a story with props: The children and their families enjoyed listening to the story ‘Whatever Next’, with puppets and props to portray the story. The children were able to dress the bear with appropriate items of clothing so that the Bear was ready to go to the moon. Throughout the story, the props sparked lots of exciting discussions between the children and their families and really brought the story to life.
Making puppets to sing and act out Nursery Rhymes: During this workshop the children and their families were making lots of different puppets such as, spiders, monkeys, little Bo Peep and many more. This allowed the children to recite and sing their favourite Nursery Rhyme with their very own character.
