In our school we believe that literacy should be an integral part of learning in every lesson. We ensure that we teach literacy through exciting, meaningful and relevant lessons and inspire our children to develop a love of learning for life.
Take a look at some snap shots of literacy in action in our school:
Book Bug Reading Challenge
To launch our new reading scheme, the children have been busy searching for clues around the school to discover who has been rummaging around in our library areas.
We started by watching the CCTV footage and discovered that BUGS have been reading our books! The bugs were very kind and left some story sacks for us around the school which we had to locate by following the map they had left.
As a thank you from the bugs, they gave us some magical beans which grew into an enormous tree in our school hall. We discovered that this is where the bugs live and found out a bit more about them and their favourite stories.
The bug told us that they want to go home with the children! They love reading and want to go home with children who read lots. When your child has read 44 times (all 4 bugs coloured in), they will get to choose a bug to take home with them!
With special thanks to Mrs Harnett who has been busy helping to make the very creative story sacks. We just love them! Our very favourites are the Rainbow Fish and the Hungry Caterpillar toys.
Now that we have discovered the story sacks, the bugs would like us to take them home. Each week, the class teacher will choose a child in the class to take a story sack home.
