Youngsters from across the North East are being invited to celebrate the upcoming National Nursery Rhyme Day at a special event at the Stadium of Light.
Local Primary schools who work with Sunderland AFC charity Foundation of Light have been contacted about the event with information going out to other schools in the region this week.
The event will feature a carousel of activities linking literacy and nursery rhymes to football to help children enjoy reading more and increase educational attainment.
Taking place on Monday 6th November morning slot running from 9am-11.30am and the afternoon slot running from 12.15pm-2.30pm.
Nursery rhymes play an important role in childhood development as well as being fun and assist with key skills such as language, communication, physical, social and emotional skills.
The event is free to attend for schools who work with Foundation of Light through the Premier League supported Primary Stars programme.
Schools who don’t currently work with the Foundation can apply to take part with prices available upon request.
We are delighted to host Nursery Rhyme Day which will bring together children from across the region to celebrate their love of reading and nursery rhymes.
The Primary Stars programme gives us an opportunity to enhance curriculum delivery for schools and give youngsters the chance to enjoy event such as this.
We would welcome enquiries from schools interested in taking part in this event or finding out more about the Primary Stars programme.
