Welcome to story time! 


Stories play a vital role in the growth and development of children. The books they read and the characters they get to know can become like friends. It's also good for children to understand that books are a useful source of information and that good reading skills are important for success in their future lives.


Sharing stories, talking and singing every day helps your child’s development in lots of ways.

Reading and sharing stories can:

  • help your child get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills
  • learn to value books and stories
  • spark your child’s imagination and stimulate curiosity
  • help your child’s brain, social skills and communication skills develop
  • help your child learn the difference between ‘real’ and ‘make-believe’
  • help your child understand change and new or frightening events, and also the strong emotions that can go along with them.


The teachers within Brighton Avenue School will be reading different stories which you can access during the school year. Keep checking back to see who who is reading a new story and let your teachers know about any of your favorite books!



Our first story time is with Mrs Jones who will be reading Monkey Puzzle. We hope you enjoy it!
