One of the ideas that the pupils contributed to our ‘Elphinstone Ross Rocks’ list , was ‘Book Circles’. On the first assembly of the new term, pupils brought a favourite book to share with their Elphinstone home-team.
The children sat in circles and took turns in talking about their chosen book and sharing with the group why it was a favourite. Some pupils brought along a book that they were enjoying reading this month and others chose to share an old favourite that they loved to read over and over again.
The hall was alive with chatter! The children were very keen to show off their books to others in their circle, and enjoying sharing, talking and listening.
