Reading for Enjoyment

On Monday 14th January, the whole of Year 7 took part in an exciting ‘reading for enjoyment’ Excel day designed to encourage and celebrate reading. Both students and staff dressed up as their favourite book character with often imaginative and visual stunning results! Throughout the day a range of exciting activities were experienced such as: drama performances and role plays; reading aloud beloved preschool books to develop students’ story telling skills to engage young children; and manipulating words to create enigmatic riddles in the style of J R R Tolkien!

Students consistently celebrated their reading by building a reading tree; watching it grow throughout the day by adding to it all the elements they loved about reading books. From characters and action to voice and writers’ style, one thing is clear: the staff and students have many reasons to love reading here at KHS!
