“Bring a parent / carer to school week” kicked off this morning with an assembly launching BookShare – where every child at the school is invited to bring in a favourite book to talk about and share. A specially-printed review card for each book will allow all readers to share what they thought of the book, too.
This morning, the teachers showed us how it’s done, telling the children about books that mattered to them as they were growing up – and clearly matter still, to judge by their presentations.
So please, do encourage your children to bring in the books they’d like to share – maybe something to think about while they’re planning who to dress as for WORLD BOOK DAY on Thursday.
Don’t forget we need donations of cakes (and other snacks) on Thursday, too! About which, more shortly…
