P5A visit Edinburgh Book Festival on PhotoPeach
P5A had great fun at Edinburgh Book Festival yesterday.
We listened to Nicola Davies. She spoke about her love her nature and wild animals and some of the travels she has been on. She even showed us some ibex poo….! Then she read from her new book, ‘The Leopard’s Tail’. It sounded so good, we bought it and one about a manatee too.
She certainly inspired us to read her books and find out more about endangered animals and how we can protect them.
We Love to Read Together on PhotoPeach
Our ‘Reading for Enjoyment’ focus got off to a great start this week.
We are all reading with buddies from other classes, it is great fun to read together.
We are learning about our favourite authors and discovering a few new ones.
“You can have magic wherever you look,
Sit back and relax,
All you need is a book….” Dr Seuss
We will be launching our reading for enjoyment focus on Friday. The children will gather in the hall: P2/3, P3 and P4 at 9.15am, N, P1 and P2 at 10am and P5, P6 and P7 at 11am. Please join us if you can.
We’ll be starting the session with a ‘Reading for Enjoyment’ focus.
Research shows that reading for enjoyment is a very important skill for children that can have a positive impact on all their learning.
We will be buddying up with other classes to read, we will be ‘dropping everything and reading’, we will be sharing our favourite books and stories. Some of us will be visiting the Edinburgh Book Festival and we’ll all be visiting Musselburgh Library soon.
We’d like as many different people to read to the children as possible. Would you be willing to read to a small group of children in school one day?
Please contact Miss Robson at school if you have any questions…
