Drop Everything and Read!!

9th September 2016
This year, we have launched our new initiative - Drop Everything And Read (DEAR for short!). Every Friday, Mr Asher will choose a point in the day when everyone has to drop what they are doing, pick up a book and read for 10 minutes. This involves everyone in the school - including Mrs Tompkins in the office!
The children can read their home reading book, a class book, a magazine, an information book, a library book - anything they are interested in. The older children are helping our youngest children in Ash class learn what reading is all about by reading a book to them during DEAR time.
The children enjoyed the first session on Friday - we're looking forward to more opportunity to DEAR as the year goes on. Maybe you can join in too, with some DEAR time at home...?
