We are Reading
During spring term, here at Padiham Green we have been busy promoting Reading. We enjoy opportunities where parents are invited into school to share books with their child. The children really enjoy sharing books with a special grown up especially at school.
In EYFS, we have introduced ‘Reading Boats’ where children can go and drift away with a story. The boats have been very popular with the children and provide a quiet cosy space for them to relax with a book.
Story stones are popular with our younger children to help them retell a known story. They also love engaging in role-play either the puppet show or re-enacting the story using character masks.
In the library, we have created a display ‘Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover’. Pupils wrapping up books and then writing the blurb for each book created this display. This unique way of creating a display has created a lot of interest with our pupils.
To end our spring term we celebrated World Book Day. Everyone dressed up including all members of staff. The children were keen to find out which characters our teachers had come as and which book they were from. This provided great interest from the children and some children even came in later in the week with some of the books. Lots of activities took place over the day including book bingo, an illustrator’s workshop, decorating gingerbread men and much, much more.
We are looking forward to sharing more reading activities, which will be taking place in the summer term.
