English Week 2017 - Reading
To launch English Week Mr Mitchell led a DEAR (Drop and Everything and Read) Assembly. All the pupils and teachers were asked to bring a book they were reading to the assembly. We then quietly read our books. It was lovely to see so many engrossed children (and adults) sharing the experience of reading together.
As part of English Week the whole school joined up for Buddy Reading. All the pupils sat with a buddy (or in some case buddies) and listened to their buddy reading to them. It was great to see children sharing a reading experience with each other, without any teacher involvement.
