Case Study - St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre | Award Nomination 2016

Ermina Kesedzic, Teacher
St Edmund’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre
 
Practice:
Ermina has worked closely with parents at St Edmund’s NSCC for the last nine years. She has been involved with the Sharing Stories Project, organising and running Sharing Stories workshops for the last 3 and half years. This project aims to promote sharing books and stories with young children and developing parents’ understanding of the value this has for their children’s development and learning. Workshops include a variety of activities related to a chosen book. The props children and parents make are then taken home alongside their own copy of the book. Sharing Stories workshops are held each term and this experience has been invaluable for developing children’s confidence, bond with their parent and language and cognitive development.
 
Impact:
The Sharing Stories Project has seen 100% of families attend these sessions with 160 children taking part. Visitors from other schools have been amazed by the involvement of all our families who are always relaxed and happy to do activities with their children and staff. Feedback from parents has been seen in our questionnaires which show children love their books from school and how they use props to tell the story to other family members. Parents have also been sending us videos of children retelling stories at home. In classrooms it has been observed that more children use books independently, their vocabulary has increased and they are making links between different stories.
