Gerald Reading Scheme for Early Years
Stories are an important part of a child’s education in early years settings.
Gerald Reading Scheme is a literacy focused programme that encourages early years to read more! A workshop style activity session for Early Years children which involves Gerald the Giraffe (an actor in costume) reading two stories to the children. Gerald engages and interacts with the children bringing the stories to life and making the process of reading stories fun and memorable. A great experience for children and teachers.
The children are given a colouring sheet, an alphabet sheet and an Eddie and Friends Sticker to take home.
Gerald Reading Scheme fits with the Early Years Curriculum and in in line with Ofsted’s literacy guidelines.
