We are delighted to be able to welcome Catherine Gilliland, an expert in Language and Literacy, to present an entertaining session on preparing young children for reading on:                            

Date: Tuesday 7th February 2017

Time: 7pm

Place: Ballymoney Nursery School

The themes of her presentation will be:

  • The importance of storytelling for creation of the reading brain.

  • Family games that promote speech and language.

  • Activities to promote key auditory and visual skills.

  • Ensuring that rhyme, rhythm and repetition make the wheels of the language bus go round and round.

  • Promoting attention and listening skills.

Catherine visited BNS last May to talk to parents and the feedback was very positive:

  • "Kate was inspiring, energising, incredibly knowledgeable - and hilarious!"

  • "I could have listened to Catherine all evening - an inspirational lady."

  • "Great presentation.  Fab speaker."

  • "Catherine was fantastic - really engaging."

Parents will receive a copy of her booklet on the evening which contains a summary of her presentation and a collection of games to promote essential literacy skills.  Catherine is happy to speak to parents individually after the event.
