What are Reading Fairy classes?
Reading Fairy classes are unique progressive classes that support every age and stage of a child’s pre-school & reading journey.
We are firm believers in learning through play and use activities that include sensory & performance storytelling, first words, phonics, songs, games, and picture book time. We use props, puppets, bubbles, musical instruments and more, to engage and delight children as they share stories and develop early reading skills at their own pace.
Each 40 minute session brings Reading Fairy and her character friends to life with original songs, dances & games. Each session ends with a snuggle up with Book Bear and a story to share with grown ups and children alike.
Classes are small with a maximum of 10 children. The classes are active and parent participation is encouraged for maximum learning.
Which class should my child join?
Our classes are progressive and are split into age groups:
· Toddler Tales (Age 12 months +) - encourages active early language and literacy
· Story Stars (Age 2-3) - introduces letters and sounds for early reading fun
· Reading Recruits (Ages 3 and 4) - develops skills for reading to prepare your child for reading at school. This class will run from September but if you have a 4 year old, why not join our fabulous Get Set For School programme - see Events page for details.
Who is Reading Fairy & who are her friends?
Reading Fairy is the core character of the classes. She introduces the class, the other characters and shares a sensory story with the children.
Music Mouse brings instruments and nursery rhymes to all the children with traditional and unique songs to encourage language development, rhythm and rhyme.
Phonic Fox teaches children about letters and sounds preparing them for early phonic sounds.
Chat Cat helps children grow their vocabulary alongside developing those crucial listening skills in order to communicate and interact with the world around them.
Book Bear ends each session with giving each child their own copy of a book, a blanket and their very own Book Bear to share a love of books and reading that is for life.
If all this sounds good… why not book a trial now and see what we are all about!
