I am at the heart of a happy community where a love of learning and a wealth of challenges and opportunities inspire my confidence, creativity and talents. I am at the heart of a caring community where I learn to respect and value my environment and the people who share it with me. I am committed to becoming the best I can be – a lifelong learner where those around me celebrate and encourage the start of my unique learning journey.

Customer reviews

Come along to the library and join in with a fun morning of storytime and crafts for children and their families. Last year “Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” Said the Sloth by Eric Carle was given to every eligible reception-aged child. The book pack also contained a non-fiction title, Why is the Sky Blue? Make time for books with the Booktime magazine from the Harbour Bookshop in Devon!

  • Our day’s theme revolved around the perfect combination of rest and reading and the day started with a warm story together.
  • Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings, help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
  • Every month, we review new children’s books – and here are the ones we like best of all at the moment.
  • The programme provided a free book pack to every Reception-aged child in England and Wales (aged 4-5 years), with guidance for parents and carers on shared reading.

Mr. Jones’s then set out the 5-step recipe for a good night’s sleep! This always ends with ‘falling’ into sleep after escaping from a busy day with the lights down low and a good story. You could build a cosy den by hanging a blanket over a table and putting cushions underneath. Sharing a book together in an unexpected place is exciting and children will start to think of books as adventures.

This also has lots of interactive games and activities as well as stories to listen to and tips for parents too.
