Reading Reward

A group of five children and their parents/ carers had a lovely reward trip to the Waterstone's shop in Durham and Lumley Castle on Monday. The trip, where the children were able to spend money on books of their choice (courtesy of the school) and then read them in the library of Lumley Castle while sipping tea and eating cakes of various types was a fitting reward for all the reading that they have completed in the Autumn term. As all parents/carers are aware, the school places a great deal of importance on the ability to read, decode and enjoy books in a variety of situations. We were delighted therefore to be able to reward the children (whose names were drawn in a raffle) with this outing.

Who knows where next terms "reading champions" will end up for their treat.....
