Reading

World Book Day 2017

As part of World Book Day each class decorated doors throughout school showing their favourite books and characters.

 

Meet the author – Jim Smith

Year 3 and 4 visited Oxbridge Primary School where they met author Jim Smith.

Jim told the children all about his books and taught them how to draw the characters.

 

 

Afterwards, the children had the opportunity to buy a signed copy of Jim’s books.

 

Year 5 took part in the Stockton Children’s Book of the Year Competition 2016.

They read books by Emma Carroll, Bea Davenport, Ellie Irving, Gabrielle Kent and Tom Moorhouse. A presentation event was held at Stockton Library where the children could meet the authors.
