This week has been our Reading Week at St Mary's and our focus has been to reignite our love for reading and reading for pleasure and enjoyment. The theme of our week was 'Oh the places you go ....' and the children were encouraged to let books take them to new and wonderful places.
Throughout the week we had a range of activities for children to engage in from Reading Buddies and Book Swops to Secret Teacher Storytime and Book Tweets. Throughout the week, the children could earn reading miles for their house by reading books of their own choosing. Each class also decorated their classroom doors based on a book they were sharing that week.
On World Book Day we began the day with Breakfast with Books and our hall was packed with families reading together and enjoying a simple breakfast. During the day the children gathered in their houses to share a story and complete some fun activities around the text. It was great to see children of all ages reading together and enjoying books.
What a busy but wonderful week! Keep reading!
