Year 4 pupils Reading For Pleasure School Trip - 20th December 2017
Reading is a crucial and fun activity that pupils love to do in Year 4. Children are expected to read daily and sign their reading records. 13 pupils from each class were rewarded for reading daily this term, they visited Peter's Showroom, which feels like a magical palace filled with books. The pupils enjoyed story time, juice and biscuits alongside the opportunity to choose some wonderful books of choice.
