The Partnership Learning Platform


Picture Books

Welcome to our story page. Every member of staff has chosen a book to share with you and your children. Sit together or scutch alone in a cosy place to enjoy these. Some of the stories have question prompts and others are blissfully free of any interruption.


A story can take you on an adventure, transform your thinking, soothe you or make you laugh out loud. Talk, share and enjoy!
