Reading in class and at home

This year we are taking part in a regional 'Talk for Reading' project. We have revamped our reading corners in our classrooms and enjoying a whole class text every afternoon for 15 minutes. The children love to sit in our reading corner and escape to an imaginery world as Mrs Coulthard reads!

In the Autumn we read and thoroughly enjoyed 'The Abominables' by Eva Ibbotson and 'The Sheep Pig' by Dick King Smith.

During the Spring term we have shared 'Bill's New Frock' by Anne Fine and lots of Anthony Browne texts! They may be shorter but we are loving them :) We are now thoroughly enjoying our dragons unit with 'Dragon Rider' by Cornelia Funke.
