#ReadingRocks16

Yesterday Miss Kingsley and Miss Zauscinski travelled to The District CE Primary School In Newton-le-Willows, Liverpool for an amazing event called Reading Rocks. It was a day of workshops and presentations for teachers all about reading in the primary school.

The school is an amazing place with a huge focus on reading. We loved exploring the beautiful reading garden and relaxing in the reading hut!

Miss Kingsley enjoyed sharing lots of ideas for reading across the curriculum with KS1 at her workshop. Here is a video of her presentation:

The teachers enjoyed seeing examples of work produced by Year 1 pupils at Russell Scott.

We attended some very interesting workshops on storytelling, comics, picture books and developing a love of reading . We have lots of ideas to share back at school!

Miss Kingsley spent her voucher on two new books by authors Adam and Charlotte Guillain and then we went to see them talk about some of their fantastic books.
