​Book Week 18-22 August 

 

This year’s theme Connect to Reading is very closely aligned to our school priority of reading for 2014.Reading is all encompassing in our world. We aim for students to connect by simply participating in the act of reading - whether that reading be a short-listed book, a magazine article about football heroes or a sign saying Walking. We want them to understand the prevalence of reading in their lives, and how important it is to both enjoy reading and develop reading skills. We encourage children to MAKE connections between what they read, and other things they think, feel, know of. We encourage them to identify connections between what they read and their own lives. We hope they’ll embrace reading and connect books to other activities, other people’s stories and other media. Kids are social beings - encouraging them to share books with their friends and others is a wonderful way to help them love reading.
