Stafford “I Love Reading” Week

Last week, we had a fabulous ‘I Love Reading’ week at Stafford!   The week got off to a super start with a visit from Henry Young from East Sussex Library service.  Then, children enjoyed some thrilling adventure stories by Pie Corbett and produced their own exciting stories in response.  We all had fun sharing a book with a buddy from another class.  We also watched the World Book Day ‘Biggest Book Show on Earth’, which featured top authors and illustrators like Cressida Cowell and Chris Riddell.  On Thursday, World Book Day, the children looked amazing in their ‘reading heroes’ costumes and staff were transformed into witches, crayons and even astronauts!

We were thrilled to have the support of so many parents and carers at our reading breakfasts and book fair.  It was lovely to see so many families enjoying a book together.  We raised a whopping £856.50, giving the school £453.90 to spend on books.  Thank you!
