Year 2 teacher and Leslie Library custodian Mrs Winter-Cole produced this amazing trailer for this summer term challenge, which will start next week in Lower School, and has all been inspired by our Head Librarian Oliver (Year 6).
Oliver wanted to create a Summer Reading challenge to get the children reading with enthusiasm and a purpose. Oliver was determined that Lockdown wouldn’t stop him and so with Mrs Newton (his Year 6 teacher) and Mrs Winter-Cole’s help, he’s adapted his ideas so that the challenge can still go ahead, for children returning to school and those still learning from home.
With his current favourite book, Michael Morpurgo's 'Boy Giant', in mind, the GIANT theme was chosen. Children throughout Lower School will be given a checklist of books to read and review, and will be rewarded with certificates and bookmarks (either in person or by post) when they complete the challenge. There will also be a ‘Review of the Week’ each week – we’ll be sure to share some here for you to enjoy!
Well done Oliver for your resilience and determination, and for not giving up on your vision despite the obstacles in the way. And a huge thanks to the teachers who have supported him in this project. ... See MoreSee Less
