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."
