Creating and maintaining a reading culture in school can be difficult but, we continue to try!
So, how can we get our children to read?
Children need to see adults consistently reading for pleasure.
Why should children see reading as a valuable activity if the adults around them do not demonstrate that reading is fun and important to them?
So, with this in mind, on Thursday 12th April 2018, EVERYONE in school – from pupils, to the headmaster, to the school caretaker – had to drop everything and read for the five minutes before break!
At 11am a bell rang and this signalled the D.E.A.R. time. Whether it was a book, a magazine, a newspaper, a book or your kindle, everyone had to stop what they were doing and read!
