We launch Focus on Reading Week on Monday, 24 Nov, with an adaptation by our teachers of an Aesop’s Fable, ‘The Lion and the Mouse’. Following this, and again during Tuesday and Wednesday assemblies, we will have storytelling, Buddy Reading, when older students read stories to their younger friends, and ‘Drop Everything and Read’ (DEAR) when all teachers and students stop what they are doing for 20 minutes just to read. There will be many activities and workshops for parents to participate in. We will post updates on our school blog and Facebook page.
