Reading at St. Teresa’s

Reading at St. Teresa’s

This week, Mr Turner and Mrs Mackenzie had the pleasure of visiting all the children’s classrooms looking at their learning environments.

It was wonderful to see all the children’s work and all the great learning displays on show.

Each class have fantastic areas that promote the love of reading to all our children. Children can read their own phonic book or choose a book to read for pleasure and sit in the reading corners/areas and enjoy the time.

A big thanks must go to all the staff for their hard work with the areas. The children Mr Turner spoke to really appreciate the spaces and have enjoyed the books their teachers have read to them just for fun!
