Take a look at our flyer for information about Never Ending Stories, one of many new reading ideas for 2017/2018.
Our recent questionnaire with the children told us how they would like to read more with their families at home. ‘Never Ending Stories’ is a new initiative aimed directly aimed at this. Each term, ‘Zap the Wizard’ will make a special appearance at St James’, with his assistant Dusty the Dog, to announce the six winners from our latest round of entries. All families have to do is send an email, or two or three, to firstname.lastname@example.org showing their reading time at home. This may just be pictures of families sat reading together, it may be pictures of models they have made – inspired by the book they are reading, it might be a ‘blog’ written together to summarise the book, it may be their child that has written the next chapter or adventure, it may be the family acting out scenes from the book. The list of reading possibilities is endless. From this range of evidence, Mrs Hambleton and Mr Denton will work with the READING AMBASSADORS to choose six award winners and will gather all evidence in a special scrapbook on display in the main entrance.
