Celebrating Our Reading Champions

World Book Day

World Book Day is fast approaching! On Thursday 2nd March, the whole school will be celebrating books and reading by dressing up as their favourite characters from various stories and nursery rhymes they know and love! It is a fantastic opportunity to study our most well-known and loved authors, to share reviews of books we have read and to generally have fun and explore what makes reading so satisfying and enjoyable.


The teachers are busy planning activities relating to world book day and we have some visits to our local library planned as well!

Aside from this, there is also the rather important matter of awarding the children with their reading certificates from last term! All those children who read, and had their homework journals signed, at least three times a week for the whole term will receive their certificate for being brilliant! Some children have now managed this three terms in a row! That is amazing, and their names will be printed at the end of the blog so everyone knows who they are! Don’t forget – all those names are put into a hat and several are chosen at random to win a brand new book to take home and read at their leisure!


Before I reveal the names of those amazing three-time reading champions, I would like to share with you the huge improvements the whole school is making. By the end of term 1, 47 children had read three times a week for the term. By the end of term 2, this number rose to 99! I set the children the challenge of making this go even higher for the term after…and at the end of term 3, the number of children rose again to 124! Thank you to all your hard work – that is superb! Can we rise again for the end of term 4?
