Here at Canterbury Road Day Nursery, we are dedicated to providing children with a variety of first-hand experiences as we believe this promotes engagement and enjoyment with learning and socialising. This allows children to experience the world around them whilst developing a range of skills and knowledge.
In line with our Nursery Goal 2- to provide children with a wide variety of first-hand experiences that positively contribute to their learning and development, we arranged a special Cinema experience at Nursery for the children in Tots to watch the Gruffalo’s Child with their friends. Prior to watching the short film based upon the Julia Donaldson book, the children enjoyed listening to an interactive story time whilst using a variety of props, to enrich the storytelling experience.
Following on from our Cinema Day, the children have re-called parts of the story and enjoyed talking about the characters from the book, with their favourite being the Gruffalo. With this in mind, we then created a Gruffalo café in the role play area and the children helped to make additional props of their favourite characters to add to our story baskets.
