The school has been over run by bugs. The bugs in question are our new friendly, furry ‘book bugs’. The bugs appeared today to launch our new 'book bug' reading reward scheme.
The children spent the day carrying out activities based on some of their favourite books. The children's super efforts were rewarded with a magic bean which they planted and, by the afternoon, had grown into a magnificent tree in which the book bugs could be found.
One of our key school aims is to encourage children to be enthusiastic readers and to enjoy books. To help achieve this is, in return for regular reading at home, the children will be rewarded with book bugs. There are nine different book bugs to collect, and we hope this will help to foster a positive reading habit.
