Talent for Writing
Children from Year 2 entered work for The Young Writers’ My First Story competition. They were asked to write a story based on five story boards. They used their creativity and imagination. Some of their work has been selected for publication in a Young Writers’ Anthology.
To mark their achievement, they have also been awarded a certificate and a bookmark.

“Inspiring children to read is one of the greatest gifts you can give them”.
We had a fantastic week at Rushey Green exploring comics, newspapers, recipes, poetry, electronic books and just listening to stories.
To complete our reading challenge parents from Nursery to Year two attended our Parent Read Along Club, where they joined in the fun of reading.
A big THANK YOU to those parents and babies who attend our First Read Along Parent Club!
Children from the Juniors have been reading with the infant children on our Cross-age Reading days. This is done each term and the children look forward to reading together. Here you can see Year 2 sharing their books with Year 6 children.
