Whitings Hill School Festive

Reading Event

Dear Parents and Carers,

So it is that time of year again and most of us will be thinking about the Festive season this year. Sadly we will be unable to hold our annual ‘Bedtime Stories’ this year or have our Book Fayre in school. However, we are still committed to the love of reading at Whitings Hill, so this year we are going to do something slightly different. ====================================================

STAFF - Staff members will be invited to read or tell a bedtime story, remotely, either in school or at home.  These will be uploaded onto Google Classroom or Tapestry in time for the holidays so you and your children can watch and enjoy. ====================================================

PARENTS, CARERS AND CHILDREN - You and your children’s challenge will be to film yourselves reading or telling a story in a festive place and/or in any festive clothes you may have. We would love you to tell/read stories from your own culture.

We would also invite any families who would like to narrate a story in the form of mini drama. We want to try and get the whole family involved.

Please film in landscape. The challenge will be set on Google Classroom and you will be able to upload your films when complete. Each class teacher will choose the best from each class and we will be giving a book as a prize to those children and bookmarks to all the other entrants.

Let’s try and make this a very happy festive season. Any questions do feel free to email me via the office. We look forward to your amazing stories in the New Year. Entries to be back by Friday 8th January 2021,

I wish you and yours all the best over this coming festive season. Stay safe and happy reading!

Mrs. Abdel-All
