Read Around The World

A group of Year Six children have been chosen to be a part of  the 'Read Around the World' crew. Every pupil received a reading passport, an invitation to Read and Feed breakfasts and, of course, a new book! 


As a starter we discussed how reading can open so many doors. Firstly we thought about doors to our future.  We tried to think of a carer or job that didn't require reading- you've guessed it- we couldn't think of ANY! Then we thought about how reading can open doors to places we've never been before.


The Read Around the World tasks include:

  1. Choosing a book from the special library shelf
  2. Visiting their individual Border Agent once a week to sign off their book and chat about what they’ve read
  3. Attend Read and Feed breakfasts on Wednesdays in Mr Gorton’s office


We hope that Border Agents will help all children find a genre or author that helps them fall even further in love with reading. If they manage to visit ten different places through their reading, they can order a book title of their choice. All fifteen of our Border Agents are very excited to hear about the first Read Around the World crew book choices and their first destinations!
