REAL on the Beach

September 28, 2019

Date: September 28, 2019


The Jersey Festival of Words is taking place 25th and 29th of September 2019. This festival celebrates and promotes all aspects of literacy, with many events taking place on the island for children and adults. Every year the schools programme, which takes place over two days, has been sponsored, enabling JFOW to offer free tickets to every school child in Jersey to the fantastic events held at the Opera House and Library, giving pupils the opportunity to meet the authors and enjoy their performances.

We will also be celebrating the Festival of Words by promoting early literacy through a programme that many teachers and nursery staff have undertaken called REAL (Raising Early Achievement in Literacy).

Part of the REAL approach to literacy is around ‘Oral Language’ and we will be hosting an event on the beach at Gorey on Saturday 28th September between 2pm and 4pm. There will be:
• The main tent with a line-up of storytelling, singing, rhyming and signing.
• Local Nurseries and Preschools running literacy themed activities
• The ‘Library on the Beach’
• EcoActive Jersey
• Local artists creating fantastic artwork with children

Please do come along. And please check with your child’s nursery teacher to see if they are coming along and joining in this exciting event.
