Katie O’Grady, from Boys & Girls Nursery, wanted to share with us how National Storytelling Week was celebrated with the children, following a visit from a very special guest!
To celebrate National Storytelling Week, children and staff at Boys & Girls Nursery enjoyed a visit from local author Cassandra Kelvin.
Cassandra visited all our nurseries in Croxley Green, Rickmansworth, Stanmore and Watford reading her book ‘The Wiggly Jiggly Worm’. The Wiggly Jiggly Worm tells the story of a worm who dreams of being anything else other than a worm. As he journeys through his day he meets some friends and wishes he were more like them. “Wiggling and jiggling is just too slow”, he complains. However, he soon realises that being a worm really is something special.
The story is aimed at children of pre-school age and teaches them that we should all be proud of who we are! This is a message that Natasha Kirby, Director of Boys & Girls Nursery, is keen to get across to all the children at the nurseries:
‘We understand that no two children are the same, and that they all have their own likes, dislikes and personalities. Celebrating individuality is a priority of ours – we spend lots of time with the children to develop their interests whilst working in partnership with our families to share information and plan for the individual needs of each child.’
After Cassandra’s visit, the children enjoyed lots of different activities including making sock puppets, pretending to be worms and going on a mini beast hunt!
