The designs from the children who took part in the competition were all put into a hat and Aida, from Haverhill was drawn out as the winner.
Thank you to everyone who took part and showed their support on the day, we hope to be running more events like this one soon. In the meantime why not head over to our Facebook page to enter our competition to win a book bundle!
There is no more important activity for preparing your child to succeed as a reader than reading aloud together. Fill your story times with a variety of books. Be consistent, be patient, and watch the magic work.
It’s no secret that activities at home are an important supplement to the classroom, but there’s more to it than that. There are things that parents can give children at home that the classrooms cannot give.
You may go through a period when your child favours one book and wants it read night after night. It is not unusual for children to favour a particular story, and this can be boring for parents. Keep in mind, however, that a favourite story may speak to your child’s interests or emotional needs. Be patient. Continue to expose your children to a wealth of books and eventually they will be ready for more stories
