A nice and cosy area at home.
Engagement in a story with the opportunity to join in with repeated refrains and anticipating key events and/or phrases.
Find a nice and cosy area in your home and listen to the famous story of Tiddler. Tiddler talks about a little fish that can tell the tallest tales… “Sorry I’m late, Miss. I set off really early but on the way to school I was captured by a squid. I wriggled and I struggled till a turtle came and rescued me.” “Oh, no, he didn’t.” “OH, YES, HE DID.” Tiddler is a little fish with a BIG imagination! What will he come up with next?
