Earith Primary School

Mrs M's Reading Blog

Reading is the most important thing a child will ever learn. It underpins everything at school, and beyond school. Reading builds language and vocabulary; it allows children to transport to magical places around the world and fills their heads with a rich array of knowledge. Reading invokes curiosity, empathy and develops emotional intelligence. Most importantly, it provides our children with an essential life skill that they need to unlock, in order to succeed in their future life. 

This blog will celebrate the rich culture of reading here at Earith Primary School.


 And another link with a famous author...
Author Andy Shepherd was delighted to receive letters from Bluebell Class. After reading the first 2 books in the series, children were inspired to share their own ideas with the author. Not only did Andy Shepherd write a personal letter to Bluebell Class, she also included a wealth of information about the development of her characters.
What's more...Mrs Lawrence had the opportunity to meet and discuss books with Andy!
A fantastic series of books - available from our library!

Story Time happens every day here at school.  Mr Abbs has recently enjoyed reading Gorilla & Grandpa to Thistle…

Gorilla Gramdpa

‘I liked it when the Gorilla dressed in dad’s clothes.  Hannah’s dad didn’t have much time for her but in the end, he took her to the zoo’ (Amelia: Thistle Class)

 …Penguin and Yeti And The Bird with Daffodil Class

Penguin Yeti

My favourite bit was when Ben came flying out of the lion’s mouth and when penguin bit lion on the nose!’
