Mystery books…

Around school this week, you may notice some books wrapped in brown paper! Book council have been working hard to wrap and label a variety of mystery books. Keep your eyes peeled! Remember, don’t judge a book by its cover!

Mystery Readers

Thank you to our first mystery readers of 2018! Phoebe’s mum visited Nursery and Issy’s mum visited RB. The children loved listening to the stories that were shared.
 
Email reading@russellscott.tameside.sch.uk if you would like to volunteer to read to a class.

BOOK ADVENT CALENDARS!

On the the run up to Christmas, many people use calendars to count down the days until the 25th of December. This year, book council decided to do a book advent calendar for each year group from year 1 up to year 6. Book council (along with some year 6 elves) wrapped and tagged 24 books per year group so that each day children could open a brand new book on the countdown to Christmas!
