Authors in Reception
The children have really enjoyed writing their book, 'When the Dragons Came' They took part in drama to develop their communication skills, worked collaboratively to improving their confidence and they really enjoyed editing and choosing pictures they wanted to use in their book. Children also joined in with repeated refrains and wrote sentences independently. Great work Reception!
During our learning about Chinese New Year, Reception children read simple sentences from menus and books, enjoyed class reader time and thoroughly enjoyed using a familiar book in role play.
Year One Reading Puppets
In Year One we have enjoyed 'perfecting' our sewing skills and creating our own 'Reading Puppets'. We used a needle and thread to sew them, which was very tricky at times, we had to demonstrate resilience! Our reading puppets can listen to us read and help us with fluency and expression!
Reception children love reading at home with their adults, this child is getting better at reading with fluency.

Year 1 enjoyed a lovely walk to the library, for some of us it was the first time we had visited the library what a fantastic new experience! Each child received their own library card so that they can borrow books to enjoy reading at home. We were amazed at the range of books and genres and shared stories together with a drink and biscuit, we will definitely be returning!

World Book Day 2021 - Bedtime Stories
World Book Day took place on Thursday 4th March 2021 and this year Holy Family celebrated the importance of 'Reading Together' with our 'Bedtime Story Sharing' theme. All children attended their virtual classrooms wearing their pyjamas and bringing their favourite book ready to share. All staff attended school in their pyjamas too! To celebrate the importance of a 'book before bed' Holy Family teachers uploaded a new bedtime story on our remote learning platform 'TEAMS' every evening at 6;45pm for a week for everyone to listen too. We hope everyone enjoyed listening! All the staff, parents and children also came together via TEAMS to share a special assembly about the different reasons why a bedtime story is so important for children of all ages. Everyone at Holy Family loves to read and we have captured this in our video. Keep reading everyone!
