World Book Day:
On March 3rd, we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of World Book Day. This year, the focus was on 'we are a reader'. Being a reader has 6 key points:
1 Being read to regularly;
2 Having books at home and school;
3 Finding time to read;
4 Having trusted help to find a book;
5 Giving children a choice in what to read;
6 Making reading FUN.
As part of our World Book Day celebration, we encouraged the children to take part in our 'Book in a Box' challenge, where the children interpreted their favourite text in their own way. We were thoroughly impressed by the efforts!
During the Autumn Term, the children were invited to take part in a sponsored read/lesson. I was thoroughly pleased to award the certificates to the children who helped to raise £300 for new books!
