First and Third class: Reading buddies

The first and third class children took part in a shared reading programme last term. Each first class child or ‘junior buddy’ was assigned a third class ‘senior’ reading buddy, and the pair met and read together three times each week over a six week period. They swapped predictions, connections, summaries, favourite details, feedback on their reading skills, and even bookmarks they made for each other at the end of the six weeks! They really impressed their teachers with their shared reading skills, and the kindness they showed towards each other. Well done Room 6 & Room 11 🙂 To see more photos of the book buddies busy at work please click here.     ...

Second Class Room 10: World Book Day

Second class enjoyed celebrating World Book Day by writing and illustrating their very own fictional narrative stories. Each ‘author’ completed two or three drafts of their story so they were perfect. Each book included amazing characters, wonderful illustrations and an exciting blurb at the back.
