Pre-school

Activities are short, fun and highly interactive. The children love sharing my books in carpet time, singing alphabet songs and learning their colours and numbers. Some of the work they have produced can be seen at The Rhymers’ Gallery. I am happy to share how the educational value of these books can enhance children’s development with staff and parents.

You engaged the children brilliantly and captured their imagination!Pre-school teacher

The Rhymers have many early learning resource books teaching children their alphabet, first words, numbers, counting, colours, shapes and much more. The learning is aided by the fun, engaging characters and colourful illustrations. There are many early learning videos I am able to share with the children; for example the Shape Up Rhymers below.

Sessions are tailored to meet the needs of each group or class. They can focus on the enjoyment of story, listening skills, story prediction, rhyme, interactive games and art skills. Re-enforcement of the teaching of phonics is embedded throughout. The Rhymers can prove that learning is fun!

Thank you for making our lesson so much fun!Bobby, Year 1

Mubble Pup, The Rhymers’ dizzy-leg-sick dog, is a particular favourite with the children. They love spotting him in each of The Rhymers’ stories and really enjoy trying to say the tongue-twisters in his Mubble Twisters book.

Age-appropriate sessions develop children’s creative writing skills through rhythm, rhyme, alliteration, plot development and understanding writing for target audiences. Focus can also be on the blending of illustration with the written word and how following early dreams can lead to a fruitful career.

As well as developing the pupils’ skills of writing for target audiences, sessions can offer insights into design techniques and the business of self-publishing. Enthusiasm to share their creative ideas with a wider audience can be explored. Empathy with others can be challenged through discussion of my Catching Lives charity work.

We really loved your lesson and you really inspired me to want to become a writer too.Katie, Year 7
