To mark World Book Day, we have spent the week celebrating books and reading. The week’s highlight was on Thursday 3rd March when so many pupils and staff dressed up as various book characters. The pupils loved the whole event and have been reading with added enthusiasm as a result.
Thanks to all parents who helped with costumes but more importantly for those of you who manage to spend time listening to your children read or be reading to them. A few minutes each day makes such a difference in a child’s progress in this area.
Reading is the key that opens up the school curriculum and learning more widely. Skills in this area bring about a greater understanding during the lessons and enhances enjoyment of those lessons. These are just some of the reasons staff make such an effort to listen your child read regularly.
