Since returning, Bloxwich Academy have celebrated the love of reading in many ways.
Firstly, we have introduced a new reading scheme called ‘Accelerated Reading’. Your child brings home a reading book every day and they take a test after every book, which checks your child’s understanding of different vocabulary and their book. This has been a fantastic success. The children have loved to celebrate changing their books, they have loved choosing a new book and they have loved reading at home with their parent/guardian.
Secondly, we have celebrated ‘World Book Day’. This was a fantastic day, both online and at in the academy, for all of our Bloxwich children. Some were asked to complete a variety of reading activities: designing their own book character, writing part of a new book, creating and designing their own character and others were encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character. This was an enjoyable day, which was celebrated by all.
Finally, we are so pleased that our parents/ guardians have supported their children to develop their love of reading. You have listened to your children read, you have offered encouragement and positivity when your child has read well and you have challenged your child and checked their understanding of certain vocabulary throughout their book.
Thank you to all our pupils for their amazing reading this term.
