Stories for Storytime in Wales suggested reading list

Daily storytime should be planned for all children from Nursery through to Year 6. Ruth and the team have drawn together a suggested reading list of stories and poems by Welsh authors that develop a cultural awareness of Wales.

The Stories for Storytime in Wales suggested reading list includes:

  • stories by Welsh authors
  • tales from Wales
  • stories of Welsh life
  • stories about Welsh people
  • Welsh poetry.

Children should be:

“immersed in language experiences and activities"

"helped to develop an awareness of Wales as a country"

"given opportunities to experience and respond to a wide range of print and fonts that include stories and poems from Wales and a range of cultures."
