Our SPOOKTACULAR Reading Week!
x

    "The profile of reading is rising in the school through events, such as the ‘Spooktacular’ reading week and the high-quality reading corners in each class, and reading challenges are encouraging more reading at home."

    Our Spooktacular Reading Week was a real success, giving us all the chance to take part in a series of fun and engaging activities.

    Early in the week, everyone in Years 3-6 visited the library, where we were issued with our very own library cards. Across the school, we then took part in workshops with three established authors. Dan Friedman is a writer who has had his range of football related books turned into a popular children’s TV series Jamie Johnson. He told us all about the way he changed careers from a journalist working with the England squad to a successful children’s author. In addition to this, we also met the hilarious Steve Cole who kept us entertained with his energetic, all-action tales. Finally, some of us were lucky enough to take part in workshops with the amazing James Mayhew, who drew an amazing illustration at the same time as telling a story.

    During the week, we also took part in a reading treasure hunt, buddy reading with younger children and our Book Swap - all leading-up to our Big Read day on Friday, where we all came to school in our pyjamas and settled down for a long, cosy read with our favourite books (and teddy bears!)
