From 22nd to 26 of April the whole school has enjoyed a variety of fun activities related to reading during Book Week. There were many activities encouraging and promoting love for reading books. The secondary students came to read books with the younger children, teachers read stories in different year groups. There was also a book swap where the children were able to swap their old books for the different ones from the other children. On the last day of Book Week many students and the teachers came to school dressed up as book characters. Primary school parents were invited to watch our special assembly and join in the book related activities in their children’s classes. It was avery busy but fun week!
Reading with the secondary school students
The secondary students came to our classs during three mornings for a 20-minute reading sessions. The Nursery children were a little apprehensive at the beginning but they felt much more relaxed when they saw how friendly and fun the big children were. It turned out to be great fun! There were plenty of story books for everybody to choose and enjoy reading.
