Special Reading Areas

Special Reading Areas

We are very excited to announce at Rushall that we have a brand new room dedicated solely to reading. As this room is meant to be motivating and inspirational, we have filled it with bright colours and called it the ‘Rainbow Reading Room’. In this room, children will work with Teachers and Teaching Assistants to develop their fluency and confidence in reading.

In addition to this, we would like to make you aware of other special reading areas in our school. There is a cosy ‘book nuck’ under the stairs where you can read the ‘First News’ newspaper, Aquila magazine (which discusses big ideas for inquisitive kids) and topic related texts and stories. You can also read in the pavilion, ‘The Rushall Retreat’ and your class reading area. Please also remember to visit the library which is operated by our Pupil Librarians daily at break and lunch.

Remember to have fun whilst reading at Rushall!

Over the holiday, Ellis and his sister, Felicity took part in the ‘Summer Reading Challenge’ which was held at all Walsall libraries.

In order to complete this challenge, the book worms had to read a total of six books in just six weeks. Ellis informed us that he read three books from the Capitan Underpants collection and three Dogman books. Ellis later added that his favourite book was ‘Dogman Unleashed’ as it was the funniest out of all of the books he read.

The reward for participating in the challenge was a shiny, golden medal and a fantastic certificate to be proud of. Ellis stated, “I particularly enjoyed the challenge of reading six books in such a short amount of time.”

If anyone else has completed this challenge, please let the ‘Rushall Dragon’ team know.
