Reception – Claire Freedman. Click here to see more.

Year 1 – Kes Gray. Click here to see more.

Year 2 – Oliver Jeffers

Year 4 – Tom Moorhouse

Year 6 – Susan Gates.   The children have focused on two sea based novels.  We read extracts of Raider and are in the process of reading I Runned Away to Sea.  We are using this writing as inspiration for our own adventure narrative linking into our Darwin topic. Watch this space for our finished work!

 

Reading mornings

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our reading mornings last week; it was lovely to see so many enthusiastic adults (and children) raring and ready to read! The children really enjoyed learning about why we read and practical strategies over breakfast with you.

Don’t forget there is still time to enter our reading challenge – just take a picture of yourself/someone famous/a family member reading their favourite book to the reading email address.  reading@russellscott.tameside.sch.uk

Below are some of the pictures below from our recent reading breakfasts.

Lots of us found Wally hidden around school today and received a special certificate. Some of us took part in a book swap – we brought a book that we no longer wanted and then went home with something new. Everyone in the school received a World Book Day token and a Charlie and the Chocolate pencil to reward them for their efforts. What a busy day!

Today we also received some very exciting news. Some of Miss Cotton’s book club children entered a blogging competition with One Education. They had to write an exciting blog entry about why they love to read. Five of our children had their work shortlisted and made us very proud. Well done Tallulah, Megan, Miquita, Aksha and Ruby. You can read their entries here by searching Russell Scott. Today we found out that Tallulah was the individual runner up for the whole competition! Wow! She wins £20 worth of books. Well done Tallulah! Click here to see the winners announcement.
