Reading Volunteers wanted!
You could be a vital part in helping us to bring the joy of reading to our children at Stratton School! If you have any time to spare, you could be part of our amazing reading squad. Each year we invite a team of enthusiastic volunteers to spend a little time regularly with our children listening to them read. This can be as much or as little time as you can offer at a time which suits you. We would love for every class to have at least one volunteer every day.
Worried that you’re not qualified? The only skill you need to be a successful volunteer is to be able to read and want to spend time inspiring our children to read. In addition, we will be running a mini workshop to outline what will be involved and to give you the opportunity to meet other enthusiastic reading volunteers, some of whom have been reading with our children for years!
If you think that you could be a part of our amazing reading squad, sign up now by email or by speaking to your class teacher and come along to our workshop on Wednesday 5th October at 2pm.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Well done to all our entrants to the Poetry by Heart competition but many congratulations on the outstanding achievement of Aurora (Class 6) in being selected as a national finalist in the 2022 Poetry By Heart competition. Poetry By Heart is a national poetry recitation competition and website for teaching and learning poetry - by heart, out loud, with choice. As a finalist she has been offered the opportunity to attend an all-expenses paid Finalists’ Celebration Event at Shakespeare’s Globe at the Southbank, London. It is a great achievement to reach this stage of such a prestigious national competition.
See our videos page to hear all of our entries this year.
World Book Day
Listen to our World Book Day readings. Which class do you think won?
Check the library for our latest shelfie and submit your ideas for which member of staff it belongs to. The mystery shelfie owner and the winning guess will be announced in Merit Assembly.
Thank you to all the children who joined in with the Read for Good Sponsored Read. We raised £332.50 for children in hospitals to receive story telling opportunities and we have received a voucher, enabling every class to choose their own book for their class library.
Well done Stratton!
