Treleigh's Bedtime Story

'WOW' 3 Million Word!!

We could not be more proud of Melissa for achieving her silver reading band today! She has read a staggering 3 MILLION words since September!! Just incredible!

World Book Day

What a fantastic day we have had celebrating World Book Day! Our theme was ‘Bedtime Stories’ and the value of reading aloud and listening to our favourite tales. The children thoroughly enjoyed ‘buddying up’ and sharing their books with different children across the school, all cozy in their pyjamas. Don’t forget to check the Facebook page at 6.45pm to listen to our mystery reader. We have already received some of the children’s stories ready to add to the mystery each Friday at the same time. Remember listening to the mystery reader counts as one of your daily reads. Simply sign the reading record ‘mystery reader.’ Thank you for your continued support.
