Hayesdown First School

Striving for excellence together

Celebrating our love of Reading

Posted on: 1st November 2019

We love to read at Hayesdown First School and in October lots of children and parents joined in with our activities to promote a love of books.

We held three Drop and Read sessions for parents to pop into the classroom as they dropped children off and stay to share a story.

These were very well attended and children really enjoyed this special start to the day. Thank you to all the parents who got involved!



Then on Thursday evening children came back to school in pyjamas with teddies and blankets. Everyone snuggled up in their classrooms with twinkling lights, cushions and some classes even had a roaring fire (on the interactive white board!!). Hot chocolate and biscuits were served part way through the evening as a bedtime time story was shared.

Everyone enjoyed the evening and went home tired but happy– ready for bed!
