Trail : home : Reading
At St Mary's we are striving to ensure every child is enthusiastic about reading. Here are some of the activities we have been using to help with this.
The author Alan Gibbons came into school to talk to the children about his books. He worked with each class, telling stories, writing different genres and enthusing them about their English work. The children are still talking about it!
World Book Day.
The children (and adults!) love getting dressed up as book characters to celebrate our love of books.
Author visits. Author Alan Durant came into school to talk to the children about his books. He couldn't resist reading them to the children and also had writing workshops with each class.
The children in Years 5 and 6 had a live web-chat with Jeff Kinney, the author of the 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' series.
The children in Nursery visit our local library weekly.
