St Mary’s Year of Reading
We hope that you are keeping well and safe. The staff are certainly missing seeing you all, especially for our Friday Reading for Pleasure sessions.
Lots of you have been accessing the story pages where teachers and children have been reading to you. We hope you like them.
Reading is a true gift and at St Mary’s we believe:
- Our love of Reading opens minds and is the gateway to our future.
- Teachers are the role models who show children how to read for enjoyment, meaning and to research.
- We want children to read with fluency, enthusiasm and to have an informed view about what they read.
More importantly, this is what you said about Reading for Pleasure:
“It helps me to imagine another world.”
“It helps me to relax.”
“I like talking about what I’ve read to my friend.”
Therefore, we hope that you are continuing to do lots of reading for fun at home.
We would love to see your book recommendations about what you have read.
This month, we are reading this:
It’s designed to support their learning at school and at home. Once you register for free, you can access more than 250 free Oxford e-books for kids along with storytelling videos, games and guides that help them develop their reading skills.
