Reading

DIVE INTO READING

At Holy Trinity, we are looking at fun ways in which our children can enjoy reading.  Class 4 have begun a new 'Dive into Reading' Project.  This involves taking home one of the class Reading Buddies and reading in unusual places.  The children then have to complete a book review to encourage others to read the book.  The children will also cascade their love and enthusiasm for reading to the other classes through assemblies, Twitter, our website and other reading buddy schemes in school.

Here are our Reading Buddies.  Meet Olive the Octopus, Doris the Dolphin, Sidney the Shark and Winston the Whale.

Winston the Whale reading his book whilst riding his bike!

Mrs Travis with her Womble - Great Uncle Bulgaria - taking a break from shopping at Asda.

He found the frozen letters and thought he would read them!  He was a bit cold in the freezer!

Olive enjoyed reading a magazine whilst having her hair done at the Hairdressers.

Olive also enjoyed going to a Gymnastic Presentation at the Best Centre followed by a bedtime story.

Even when you are waiting patiently for a School Reading Buddy to take home, you can read to your own Buddies at home...even whilst doing the splits!

There are some fabulous Reading Displays around school!
