Extreme Reading Challenge

Where is the most extreme place you have ever read a book? Whether it is up a tree, on top of a mountain or stood on your head, we want your photos!

To kick start World Book Day 2017 we are holding an Extreme Reading Challenge. You are encouraged to think as creatively as possible and ask a parent to photograph you in the most unusual, extreme (but safe) places reading a book!

You can email your extreme reading photographs to extremereadstjohnsceprimary.co.uk or hand them into your class teacher. Please make sure you include your full name and year group.

Prizes will be awarded to each year group for children with the most imaginative and creative reading places. Closing date for entries is Wednesday 1st March.

We look forward to seeing your entries!

Children in Year 2 this school year have had the opportunity to improve and develop their cycling skills.Six bikes were purchased at the start of September to allow the children of year 2 to experience riding a bike. Children have been working in small groups with Mr Qualter on a range of activities to help children develop confidence when riding a two wheeled bike.  Hopefully with continued practice year 2 will be accomplished riders by the end of the school year.
