Instead of our children bringing sweets and cake into school to celebrate their birthday, we now encourage them to donate a book into our 'free choice' reading collection. We are giving our children 'a voice' and allowing them to tell us what they enjoy reading. Here are Eilidh and Matilda donating a book each in celebration of their birthdays.
What do our children say about reading?
Year 1 - Ava
"I just love reading all the time because I learn new things. I get to go on new imaginary adventures. It's great. I read in the morning, I read at breakfast, I read at school, I read at bedtime. I'm just always reading."
Year 2 - Thomas
"I enjoy reading. It is up there with football."
Year 3 - Carter
"I don't want to stop reading it. It's so good."
