World Book Day 2016

Today we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as book characters and taking part in a book swap. We listened to Steven Butler read from his book ‘The Diary of Dennis the Menace’, Rachel Russell read from her book ‘The Dork Diaries’ and Michael Morpurgo read from his book ‘Best Mates’. (Click on the book titles to watch each video). Check out the World Book Day website to watch even more videos or play some games. We even had time to make a bookmark! Phew!

Paired Reading

Primary 3 and Primary 6 have been working together on a Paired Reading project. Paired reading buddies meet once a week to develop their reading and listening skills.

P3 will read a book while P6 knows to actively listen to their buddy read. If the P3 gets stuck, the P6 buddy joins in reading or helps them to read the word.

It’s a great way for P3 to develop their fluency and expression and for P6 to develop their listening and questioning skills.
What do you enjoy about paired reading?

Let’s Go Fly a Kite

As part of our Learning Together Assembly we have learned this song from Mary Poppins because it reminded us of the chapter of Flat Stanley when he becomes a kite.

We hope to see you there!
