Welcome to the gallery!
For World Book Day this year, we all dressed in our warm pyjamas and brought our favourite teddy or cushion in to school. To celebrate a love of books, each class took part in an African story telling session, with a lot of audience participation. Also, classes snuggled up with a drink, a biscuit and a good book and read for pleasure - not just to answer comprehension sheets! There was even a reading cafe in Year 4 where children had to practise the art of sipping their "coffee" while reading at the same time!
Don't forget to take your book tokens to the nearest book shop or large supermarket, where you can exchange your token for a book!
What a fantastic start to the year!
Our Reading Forest has officially opened. I hope you all had a chance to visit the Pop Up Book Hut and exchange a leaf or twig for a book to keep at home. The event ignited the children’s passion for reading and we were thrilled to see how excited they were.
We are working hard to ensure our children develop a love for reading. You can help too! Make sure you are reading with your child or to your child every day. It is important that they are given the chance to escape into a book. Plus, the skill of reading is essential to enable them to explore all their interests across the curriculum.
