Meet our four new furry friends: Patch, Lilly the learning bunny, Bearaby Jnr and Lewis the listening dog!
We have had such a fun-filled morning, also visiting Waterstones to choose a book and listen to a story, and Tiger, where we drew our future selves and got a goody bag! We also had a storytelling session with David Doyle – much fun was had by all!
This was all made possible by our participation in the Young Readers Programme – a fully-funded, charity run programme that enabled the children to receive 3 new books for free!
As a result of our participation, we have seen a big increase in the children’s enjoyment and engagement of reading as well as a developed understanding of how to choose an appropriate book. The children have been recommending good books to each other, requesting books and authors, as well as sharing the books once finished!
It has been a pleasure to work with the children in year 3 and 4, as well as their teachers.
P.s. please remember children: once you have finished your book, if none of your family or friends want to read it, we would love you to donate it back to school so other children can enjoy the books too!
Not put off by the typical British weather, we moved our reading ‘picnic’ from our park plans into the lower hall. Year 3 and 4 had a lovely afternoon looking at, choosing and beginning to delve into their first brand new book! Requests are now flooding in for event 2 and I will be placing the order for the next wave of books by the end of the week!

On Thursday 10th March, some year 3s, who had been selected as talented writers, attended a workshop with children’s author Sally Crabtree. Here is some of what we got up to…
On Wednesday 9th March, Year 4 children from Chestnut and Sycamore classes went to Marjons for the day to discover books. They had an amazing time and were involved in workshops where they wrote story endings, stepped into a virtual book, used rhythm and instruments to tell stories and even made their own book. Once again the children were very well-behaved and I was very proud to accompany them.
