We took part in a Gender Action project earlier this year and we have been thinking about gender stereotyping and how this can limit children. We found that a lot of books have boys as the main characters and we wanted to make sure there are girl main characters as well. So we have created different versions of some of the stories we use. This week, for example, we watched Jill and the Beanstalk as well as Jack and the Beanstalk. Once a week, usually on a Friday, we watch a story or two on the whiteboard together and these videos are also available on the website so you can look at them again at home and talk about them with your child. Please do read books and share stories at home - it makes such a difference to your child's development.
