Extreme Reads

In the build up to, ‘I Love Reading Week’ many dedicated teachers and pupils left their comfort zones (literally in some cases!) to raise the profile of ‘reading for pleasure’ by capturing themselves taking part in an ‘extreme read’. Calderstones School’s literacy co-ordinator, Lucy Duffy, says: “English certainly isn’t boring and it is up to us as teachers to show students how exciting it can be! We know that students who read, succeed and we will do whatever it takes to encourage them to do so.”

Celebrating 75 glorious years

The children at Blackmoor Park Junior School, Liverpool had a wonderful day recently celebrating their school’s 75th anniversary. The day started with a pop band taking the children through the music of the last 50 years. They enjoyed singing and learning about how music has changed over time. In the afternoon the children enjoyed a ‘Blackmoor’s Got Talent’ show and celebrated outside on the school field with barbecue food and home-made cakes. Headteacher Martin Davies, says: “All children received a commemorative teddy and a mug that was specially designed for the occasion. The weather was glorious and that added to the great success of the day. Well done to everyone for all their hard work!”
