READING RAINBOWS LIBRARY TRIP
All our pre-school children were invite to attend a special session at Fountainbridge Library on either 29th May or 31st May where they all received a Reading Rainbows bag. The bags, which contain two books, a white board, pens, and parent postcards. Reading Rainbows aims to spark a love of reading among pre-schoolers, giving them the best start when they begin school. The project is also designed to support parents and carers to share books and stories with their children, encouraging them to think about the tales together and to visit libraries more often. At Dalry Nursery Class the Reading Rainbows books also become the focus for many of our transition activities, including visits to the library, classroom activities and our ‘Moving Up Day’ on the 11th June for those children who are starting Primary 1 at Dalry in August. These activities help to support our pre-school children prepare for their move to Primary 1 in August.
THIS YEAR’S TRANSITION BOOK IS ‘DEAR DINOSAUR’
Reading Rainbows are supported by City of Edinburgh Council’s Library and Information Service and Children and Families Service.
