Community Grant for 'Share a Story' project
We have been lucky enough to receive a grant to help develop a 'Share a Story' initiative to promote weekend reading and the enjoyment of reading for pleasure at home.
Miss Hall will work alongside the School Council to create a series of book bags that can be loaned over the weekend for families to enjoy. Each book bag will have a unique school design and contain a story, teddy, hot chocolate, book mark and family comment book. The bag will go home on Friday and be returned to school on Monday for another family to enjoy. We hope that this will give our children and families access to new, inspiring stories and promote further reading at home.
Daily Story Time
Every teacher ensures that children have the opportunity to listen to or share a story/poem/extract/play at the end of every school day. It can be selected by the child, a class novel, linked to their topic, current affairs - whatever direction the class choose. They may even decide to share their own story outdoors in their own Hobbit hole!
