Drop Everything And Read

Hurst Green’s Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) Half Term Challenge

As part of our continued drive to improve our enjoyment of reading at Hurst Green Primary School, we will be launching our ‘Drop Everything And Read’ (DEAR) initiative at the start of March 2015.  This is designed to show the importance of allowing time to read and of sometimes being so engrossed in a book that the need to finish it must be prioritised over other tasks!

We are therefore launching a photographic ‘Extreme Reading’ challenge for staff and pupils to capture themselves totally engrossed in a book in an interesting and obscure place!  For Reception and Key Stage One children this may be a photo of an adult sharing or reading a book to a child.  For example you could read with your parents in the snow, with a grandparent on a beach, or alone in a chicken coup or during a concert!  Please be imaginative and creative but ensure that your location is safe.

These photos will be used to form a whole school reading display in the library. Please submit your photograph to your class teacher by Friday 27th February with your name and class clearly marked on the back.
