Stories, songs and art to develop language and literacy skills.
Did you know that 58% of children starting primary school are already behind in their reading and 34% of children leaving primary in England are unable to read to the required level? (Beanstalk Charity 2017).
At the Walker Art Gallery, we want to help to address this issue and encourage children to develop their language and literacy skills and create a love of reading through our new Storywalkers education sessions. The sessions feature free activities based around stories, songs and art for early years children.
Storywalkers is a collection of events linked to language and literacy for children up to seven years old to encourage early communication, physical development, language and literacy skills, as well as encouraging a love of reading, writing and art.
