A True Celebration of Reading 2017 (July 2017)

We started our special day with an assembly, before breaking away into reading groups. We ended with an extra special celebration assembly with certificates awarded to the winners of the Extreme Reading Competition and Best Dressed Book Character Competition. We also had lots of donated books which were given to the children at the end of the day to take home and enjoy!

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.
