Reception's Book Week

Class: Reception Year: 2014 - 2015

As well as dressing up for World Book Day (thank you for your support - we had a super time!), Reception have enjoyed a Hairy Maclary themed book week. All the children received a copy of the book to keep, along with some other reading material in their Bookstart bags. We spent the week sharing the book, talking about the characters and rhymes, learning to read parts of it and looking at other books by the same author. The children have had a go at writing their own Hairy Maclary books, made hats decorated to look like their favourite dogs from the story and baked 'muddy bone' biscuits which they enjoyed during our Hairy Maclary party which rounded off the week. 

We hope the children enjoy sharing their Hairy Macary stories with you at home and that they are inspired to visit the library to find the other stories in the series. The children have been really enthused to see how confidently they can read when they are familiar with a story. Please share favourite books with them as often as possible and encourage them to join in with you as you read them. This is a really accessible, enjoyable and important aspect of their reading development which should sit alongside the sometimes more taxing phonics-based reading that they practise in their Read Write Inc lessons.
