Picture Book Reading

12th September 2019

By Halls Head College Year 12 Students

Halls Head College English Teacher, Ms Richardson and her year 12 students were invited to join the Kindergarten children from Halls Head Primary School for an engaging session of picture book reading.

The Year 12 students embraced the opportunity to share a rich selection of stories as they sat nestled under the trees with small groups of children.

The Kindergarten children listened intently as the teenagers brought the stories to life. The students found the enthusiasm from the 4 and 5-year-olds in the Dolphin’s class contagious, who were excited to have the big-kid visitors in their class.

Listening to stories plays a vital role in children’s pre reading skills and oral language development and is embedded within Halls Head Primary’s programming.
