Family Literacy Week 2021

What is family literacy?

Family literacy is the way that parents, children and extended family members use literacy at home and in the community. It occurs naturally during the routines of daily life and helps children and adults get things done.

This year’s theme is “Let’s Be Active! Move*Play*Learn”

This year things will be a little different as we cannot come together as groups. However there are still some super fun activities taking place!
