New Building - Time Lapse

We are now getting very close to the roof being installed on the new building. In the dry weather the bricklayers have been able to make great progress. They are now up to the top of the first floor and have completed many of the internal walls.

It is still anticipated that the building will be completed ready for January 2019.

Get Caught Reading
Why have a reading competition?
We believe in developing a culture where children are intrinsically motivated to read for pleasure. We believe in encouraging them to read both inside and beyond school. We believe that the most effective way to promote reading is to work in partnership with parents and families.

How does it work?
During the holidays, parents and family look out for chances to 'catch their child reading'. This can be a book or any other reading material: timetables, recipes, instructions. The images can then be shared via our social media platforms to celebrate the reading being done and promote the competition to other families. Look out for photos from staff, who also take part in the promotion!

What is done with the images?
Our librarian adds the images to the Get Caught Reading Map. We plot the distance from where the image was taken to the school - so that we can see if it is possible to beat the previous year's reading mileage. All the images are posted on our blog and entered into the competition. At the end of the holiday, the most unique and interesting photo wins a prize!

Without a doubt the Get Caught Reading competition has been one of our most successful ways to promote a love of reading beyond the school. Each year, thousands of reading miles are accumulated. Pupils are caught reading in an amazing array of places: pools, on trampolines, in historic castles and even underground. It also sustains the link we have with parents and carers during the holidays and allows us a window into what our pupils have been doing during the break... thank you for your support and for sharing!

Congratulations to Ethan & Summer who were caught reading in Costa. Ethan was getting his head around some very long dinosaur names... hopefully the hot chocolate helped!

Q. What do you call a dinosaur with one eye?
