PIXIES AND SPRITES


FOR BABIES FROM 12 WEEKS THROUGH TO 1 YRS



This level is a magical introduction to stories where babies experience a traditional tale specially written to amplify the rhythm of language (it's the first thing they learn!) and to develop their phonological awareness (put simply that words are made up of smaller sounds).

It's interspersed with lots of exercises to help them develop including music, movement & sensory and results in children who are able to sit and listen to stories - and want to!  (30 mins) 

FAIRIES & ELVES


FOR TODDLERS FROM 1 TO 2 YRS


Now up and flying about, children in the Elves and Fairies level are taken through the story by the characters within it.

Fast moving and interspersed with lots of fun activities these children get the chance to develop early role play and character skills as well as continuing to build on their phonological awareness and basic story structure.  (30 mins)

MERMAIDS & PIRATES


For 2 to 7 year olds



During the Mermaids & Pirates level we introduce traditional narrative alongside some of our more colourful characters and invite the children to tell the story with us.  And they do!


Now starting to really re-enforce the structurs of traditional stories (which schools use to teach literacy) we work to immerse the children within the story and encourage them to use their language skills, especially on traditional phrases. 


"Little Pigs, Little Pigs, Let me in!"
