Reading Cafe
Thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who joined us for our first Reading Cafe this week. It was lovely to see both children and adults enjoying listening to a story and taking part in a craft activity related to the text.
KS2 read the book 'Can I Build Another Me?' and thought about their own personal qualities. They then designed a show that reflects their personality and qualities.
EYFS and KS1 read 'The Way Home for Wolf' and thought about how important it is to have caring people around us. The children then made their own wolf to remind them of the story.
Parent Feedback: "What a lovely way to start the morning. It was so nice to be invited back inside the school and experience the 'Reading Cafe'. Watching the children listen intently to the story being read and then take part in a craft activity with them was wonderful. Having children in different key stages allowed me the opportunity to experience both environments and a chance to talk to the teachers. It was relaxed and engaging with lots of happy faces."
Pupil feedback: 
Tom - "I liked the book because of the positivity in it. It was about everyone being different, nobody is the same and nobody is perfect."
Barnaby - "The bit I enjoyed the most was reading the story and having a nice time drawing. It made me really happy."
Wilf - "I liked the Reading Cafe because the story was about 'Wilf the Wolf'."
Eliza - "I liked having the story and making the wolf. It was fun making a wolf with my nana."
