DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) week starts next week on Monday 5th November. All week, students will be expected to stop whatever they are doing at 12:30pm in order to complete 25 minutes of a reading activity.
- Students might be asked to read independently
- The teacher may read something with the class as a whole
- Students may be given non-fiction material, such as newspapers or articles relating to their course to read through in order to extend their knowledge.
- Students may be asked to read exemplar essays / model answers
As we know, wider reading of a subject is essential for supporting both high achievement and in making sense of the learning that has taken place.
Students should ensure that they are equipped for learning and have brought a reading book to school each day.
Thank you in advance for your support,
Mrs Thornton and Miss Hobbs
