Here are a collection of photos from our Year R parent and child initiative 'Share Bears'. 17 families completed our Autumn-Spring programme. 'Share Bears' is a parent and child programme designed to engage families in reading together for pleasure, and to help teach early literacy skills. Each week parents and children explored a new book, with special questions to answer, and also completed an art activity about each story.
"My child has loved Share Bears, we have managed to spend quality one on one time together."
"Share Bears has really got my child into loving books."
"I liked the idea behind it and my daughter was very excited by it!"
"I think all the sessions I attended were very well organised and very enjoyable."
"I think it is a great way to keep up to date with your child's learning."
"It was good to spend time with my child in the school environment."
"It's nice to have an understanding of what's being taught"'
"I have loved coming to Share Bears, the activities have been amazing!"
"Doing Share Bears is good fun for the adults, also the children. Seeing their faces when you walk in is priceless and it gives them something to look forward to."
"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to take part. I hope that you get more books so we can take part again!"
For parents who have not yet had the opportunity to take part in the programme, look out for dates for our Summer Share Bears programme starting soon.
