Finchale World Book Day 7th March 2018
Although the snow stopped us from getting into school on the actual day we still managed to celebrate World Book Day, just a little bit late! What a fantastic time we had. We came to school dressed as a character from a book or piece of writing we enjoyed. Mrs Lennox (Literacy Co-ordinator) introduced the day and Mrs Morton led our assembly which was interactive and great fun. She left us with an individual challenge to READ all or part of a book today. There was also lots of reading in classes and in Reception Class every time a bell rang they were going to READ.
A huge well done to our pupils who took part in the Reading Agency and Libraries
"Animal Agents - Summer Reading Challenge 2017". Supported by the Arts Council England.

Celebration of Reading Assembly 6th July 2017
Here at Finchale we are part of a Literacy Project with EEF (Education Endowment Foundation). Miss Kennedy is the Durham Consultant for the project and has been working with Mrs Lennox, Literacy Co-ordinator and our teachers. She came into school to spend the afternoon with our children at a very special assembly.
Miss Kennedy talked about how fantastic reading is and encouraged all of our pupils to read and write themselves. She left a gift for school - a book called "My Name is Book, An Autobiography" as told to John Agard. She was also very pleased to join forces with Mrs Lennox to judge the Extreme Reading Competition, the results will be announced at our Celebration of Reading Day.
