Whole School Reading Lesson – Friday 24th June 2016

On Friday 24th June, the Academy came to a stop for 30 minutes with staff and students taking part in a whole school reading lesson! The actual lesson was very simple – all staff have to do was either read the opening chapter of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ to their class (or play them the video of JK Rowling reading it if they’re not confident doing this) and fill any of the remaining time with discussion about what they have just read.

The event was witnessed by Lucy Trinder, of Dalmatian, and Matt Freeman, of Mansfield 103.2. A huge thank you to Mr Husband, Literacy Co-ordinator, for organising this – all staff and students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson!
