The children bring home a Story Sack every alternate Friday. The children spend time within the nursery session looking at the contents of the bags and choosing one they would like to take home. They then hang their chosen Story Sack on their coat peg to be taken home.
The bags consist of :- Fiction Story
Non Fiction Book
The children are allowed to keep the Story Sack at home until the following THURSDAY. Please try to remember to return these on time as we have to check all returned bags ready to be lent out again. The children learn that they must take very good care of their Story Sack and ensure that anything taken out of the bag is looked after and then replaced back into the bag. This helps the children to learn about responsibility and taking care of other peoples' property. The children MUST return their Story Sack before they are able to choose another. We know our parents' understand the value of reading with your child and the Story Sacks offer an ideal opportunity to do so as well as use props, play games etc, connected to the story. Most importantly, it is FUN!
