Reading for Pleasure
The School Council have been busy both in the Autumn and Spring Terms of this year trying to move forward Reading for Pleasure within the school. As a result, they have had discussions on what makes reading pleasurable - they carried out questionnaires with their classes to decide what makes reading enjoyable, both within the classroom and at home, and then what we can do as a school to increase the pleasure.
At times they have been little book detectives secretly visiting the classrooms identifying where books are ‘advertised’ well, whether they are displayed in a way that it makes it easy for children to choose and identifying where things can be improved. They’ve also reported back on how the Book Corners and Reading Hubs are changing with each new topic.
At our last council meeting we began to discuss how the playground could be made more exciting with possible paintings on the tarmac and how these might help link with our fitness in PE. We are also beginning to think and discuss with our classes about how we can look after the equipment that we have; this discussion will continue through the Summer Term.
