Book Week celebrations

We finished off our Book Week celebrations today with a dress up day in which students and staff came as their favourite book character. Our morning parade revealed an amazing array of book characters from Superman and Harry Potter to Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.

 

Book Week celebrates the amazing thing that is reading. This complex skill, so necessary for   everyday work and life, is of course one of every school’s core roles. Time is dedicated to the learning and teaching of reading on a daily basis. The ongoing practise out side the classroom walls is essential to refine and enhance the skills taught at school. As with any skill, with practise comes improvement and so we continue to encourage you to support your child’s reading development at home; giving them many opportunities to practise their reading skills.
