This afternoon’s learning was dedicated to reading for pleasure – anytime, anywhere, anyhow! We had: a range of reading areas, and environments, to choose from; a book blanket and book nook to select texts from; reading identity activities; book cover and fav read displays; a mystery reader (Mrs Aldous); paired reading with Year 3 children and Mr and Mrs Townsend; a surprise book basket with signed copy of Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s The Girl of Ink and stars, Year 6 volunteers bravely sharing their book choices, and a great deal of ‘book blether’.
The children’s feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with several saying that they didn’t like reading, but today had opened their eyes to new possibilities. If you could be our next ‘Mystery Reader’ and would be willing to share a book with the children, please let me know and we’ll try and arrange a suitable time to surprise 6A. Well done 6A, and thank you for trying something new!
