Welcome to our Literacy Page!
It's an exciting time for us in Literacy. There's so much happening within the school that  is inspiring us to read more, write more and just generally get lost in an amazing world of words, and we love it!

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you that visited the Book Fair this year. We had a record number of sales, which has meant that we have doubled last year's commission that we have earned. This money will go towards new books to support foundation curriculum areas, new fiction for the library and dictionaries for the new class next year. 

Once again, a great big THANK YOU!


The Reading Disco

 It was the first Reading disco of this year and we saw a staggering 169 children there!!


With the inclusion of a Lip Sync Battle, our Reading Disco is becoming a real hit! If you read a total of 12 times in 3 weeks - signed into your reading record by an adult -you'll earn yourself a Golden Ticket and be able to join us on a Friday Lunchtime for a boogie. If your class has the most attendees, you'll also win the Glitter Ball Trophy!



We'd also like to welcome the new Junior Librarians. They're already doing a fantastic job, organising the library shelves, giving advice to children about selecting the right book and leading the reading in the outdoor portable library.


What will you be reading this half term!?

See...I told you there was a lot to be excited about!

Keep up the Great Work!
