Reading Party – Autumn Term 2018

The Reading Party for the Autumn Term was the ‘Greatest Showman’ theme and took place on Tuesday 18th December 2018. We were joined by an AMAZING dance teacher Mina Burden from FAB dance school. The children split into 2 groups; alternating between dance fun in the hall and watching the film in a classroom, karaoke style of course!!

Everyone was very excited and looked totally fabulous in their Greatest Showman themed outfit! We had lots of very dashing ringmasters in the building. Thank you to all our parent’s for all your efforts and support with enhancing your child’s reading skills, it is really appreciated.

Mina sent a lovely email through to the school office which said “Thank you so very much for having me today, I absolutely loved coming to your school. Such lovely children, and friendly staff. Thank you for also offering to send information of up and coming workshops via parents mail, that is extremely kind.”

This is the Greatest Show!


Reading Success

Over 90 children attended our Easter reading party and we would like to thank everyone who gets behind our drive to encourage all our children to be confident, enthusiastic readers. Reading is the primary skill that opens up all other learning for the children BUT we can’t do it all in school. We really do appreciate all your help and support with building up the children’s fluency, stamina and enjoyment of reading. Great readers are never bored!

Excellent reading skills under pin the acquisition of language, the understanding of punctuation, the investigation of knowledge and facts, plus many more skills that are so important in everyday life.
