Trips around the local community are a favourite of the children here at St Mary’s ECEC, they especially enjoy trips to the library.
The children are learning about safety in keeping together by holding hands with each other and the teachers. They are also learning about literacy and music in reading the books together and being read to at the story time session. This is giving them an appreciation for books and stories, including some from other cultures. This is also increasing their exposure and experience with new books and songs as well, given some that were read or sung at the story time session they might not have been familiar with prior, at home or at St Mary’s.
