The children in Primary proved themselves to be wonderful peer teachers on World Book Day this year. On Thursday the 6th of February we visited West Hampstead Nursery and read to the children there. For that hour vertical age grouping was experienced at another level. Then Primary children were very quiet and respectful while entering the nursery environment as they understood how young the other children were and how they were having a busy work cycle. When reading to the children the Primary children showed wonderful skills in reading such as expression and intonation to engage their younger listeners.
Well done Primary for making it an enjoyable morning with the nursery children.
Wow! Books, books everywhere! Reading was in the air throughout the whole school during World Book Day!
Excitement built as Primary joined Preparatory in their classroom and many children sat clutching their favourite books in anticipation of a reading from West End Lane Books our special visitors especially invited in for the day. The children sat with baited breath hanging on every word.
A truly marvellous reading was rounded off by a quick Q&A and then the children compared their books.
