Remote Reading

World Book Day 2021

 

World Book Day 2021 fell during our period of remote learning but we wanted all children to celebrate the day at home with lots of fun book based activities.

Everyone was sent this sheet full of fun ideas and a book hunt sheet, but would anyone be able to find all 15 books?

Children made a great effort, some working with siblings, to find as many books as they could from our book hunt list.
We encouraged children to watch as many of the free online workshops, author interviews and illustrator draw along sessions. These sessions provided some great inspiration with children particularly enjoying drawing new characters. 
Children wore their pyjamas, as they do in school every World Book Day, and shared their favourite books with us. Some drew amazing pictures of their favourites.
But most importantly we asked children to read and to enjoy it!
We shared book related stories on Facebook.

The Festival of Literature (2nd - 12th February 2021)


The Festival of Literature brings acclaimed authors, illustrators, and poets together to inspire both children and adults to read for pleasure.  It is a fantastic opportunity to get our children excited about reading. The events are available to watch live or on catch up. The children will have access to live streams, live questions and answers from the authors as well as fantastic teaching resources linked to each author event, tailored to suit each year group. Teachers will be in touch soon with more information. 

Book Club

 

During Lockdown 2021 as most children are at home learning remotely we have decided to make Book Club remote too, with weekly discussions online.

 

We are currently reading:

Year 6 - High Rise Mystery by Sharna Jackson

Year 5 - The Light Jar by Lisa Thompson

Year 4 - The Bookshop Girl by Sylvia Bishop

Year 3 -The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy

 

 

 

We continue to interact with the authors of the books we are reading through our Twitter page.

Our Book Club has it's own Twitter, dedicated to everything reading!

We use it in lots of different ways.

We give each book we read a star rating to let other people know if they should read it.

We share things that have been said in book club that make us happy, make us laugh or make us proud.

We use it to stay in contact when we're not in school due to lockdowns, periods of isolation and school holidays. Children can send in book reviews of books they have read outside of book club, to encourage others to read them or to attract the attention of their favourite authors.

We share and enter competitions, so that our followers can enter and build up their book collections or so that we can build up our school collections.

We use it to interact with our favourite authors. We ask questions about books we have read and find out about books we might like to read.
