Author Rebecca Fan Blinston visited our school and read to us all her book, ' The Albert Dockhounds.' Rebecca worked with Year 3 and 4 classes to develop their writing techniques.
Year 5 & 6 visited In Another Place's Narnia Experience at Bootle Strand. They also had a special workshop with Author, Alan Gibbons. What a wonderful experience for our children.
We had a whole school book swap. Each child donated a book they no longer wanted any more and swapped it for a new book. It was so much fun and every child had a new book to read and take home with them. We even invited our staff and parents/carers to swap books too.
In addition, each class held their very own reading is fun workshop. Parents were invited to join in. In Year 1, they went on a Gruffalo trail and in Year 4 they made their very own pop up rain forest fact books. Reading certainly is fun at Our Lady Star of the Sea!
