At Perryfields Primary, we are passionate about reading and we encourage children to become fluent readers as this helps them access all other areas of the curriculum.
Monday 16th September marks the start of out Fanatical about books challenge in Marmalade. For the next couple of weeks, children are encourage to take up the challenge which involves reading at least two books by the same author each week. We are currently reading the Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and the children have thoroughly enjoyed this; from being detectives to role playing; we have not had a dull moment. We must nurture this passion and encourage our children to read for pleasure. You can read to or with your child and then, send in a picture of them reading their books in their most cosy spots or places. Let’s make this as creative and exciting as possible.
Enjoy and let the challenge begin!
