A year of reading for all
The Federation of St Cuthbert’s and St Sebastian’s Primary Schools decided to make 2014 their ‘Year of Reading’, during which they have attempted to raise the profile of reading for pleasure, by getting involved in a variety of activities, events and competitions. Both schools within the federation are also working towards achieving the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark. One of the aims of both schools was to work to improve the physical appearance of their buildings to more emphatically reflect their love of books and of reading. The pupils produced some large scale 3-D reading displays. The finished models, made using a variety of media, resemble pop-up books reflecting aspects of some of the children’s favourite stories – The Gruffalo, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, The Cat in the Hat and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
