Reading for Pleasure: Autumn
Whether your child is a bonafide bookworm, a casual reader or someone who reluctantly picks up books, we will support them in their journey through literature from Nursery through to Year 6. Each classroom at Woodfield has a fantastic selection of reading, including shorter tales, graphic novels, non-fiction and the weekly First News.
Reading is something that truly opens up worlds, where children's curiosity and vocabulary grows and develops at the pace which is right for them. It really is a passion here at Woodfield and we would love for you to ask for our support in choosing new books for your child or making suggestions as to how you can make the most of your one-to-one reading time. Just contact your class teacher via Dojo or through the school office.
This spring, although things are a little different, we are incredibly fortunate to have access to a range of fantastic reading resources, from Oxford Owls to the Plymouth Library Service for Schools. Take some time time to explore these excellent resources with your children and please get in touch if you have misplaced their log ins or you require a new one.
World Book Day 2021
Next Thursday (4th March) is World Book Day, which is always a special event at Woodfield. This year, due to the restrictions, it will be slightly different but we will still be making the most of the day. Firstly, we invite all the children to dress up or make a mask of their favourite book character to attend the day's lessons; secondly, we are hosting a Book Face competition, where different teachers, TAs and other school staff will hide their identities behind book covers so that the children can guess who is behind each one; finally, there will be guest readers for each class, which will see different teachers and TAs reading their favourite books to different classes.
Alongside this, there will be the usual book tokens, which can be collected from school or received digitally. We will be in touch about these closer to the day.
A special message from the author and Welsh Children's Laureate, Eloise Williams
Whether you want to swashbuckle the oceans, tame a fierce lion, visit a new planet or explore a vast jungle, there are many books for you.
