Mrs Lewis, our English Leader, has created these videos so that you can access Carlton Colville Primary School's "Book of the Week" each week at home, or in school. Why not cuddle up with your family once a week to enjoy the Book of the Week?  
We began "Book of the Week" on Monday 22nd January's assembly with "Down the Back of the Chair" by Margaret Mahy, and then followed this with "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter in assembly on Monday 1st February. 
Keep an eye on this page as more books titles will be added each week. All of the books featured in these sessions are available for purchase in digital or hard copy format at online stores. Some of the texts are also accessible for free via youtube or online libraries. 
www.getepic.com is an online library currently offering parents and carers a 30 day free trial, which is an excellent way to support our children to read for pleasure at home during this lockdown. 
The books will vary in age suitability, so as to consider the reading preferences of all of our pupils, whether they are in Nursery or Year 6. 
Do you have a favourite book? Recommend the title to Mrs Lewis and she will see if it is possible for it to feature as a "Book of the Week".
Remember that "reading is the key that unlocks the learning" and that "children who read, succeed"
