We celebrated the end of Book Week Scotland on Friday afternoon by working in small ‘Book Buddy’ groups for a bit of paired reading. P5-7 pupils had been practising their fluency and expression when reading aloud throughout the week in preparation for today, and were prepared with some reading prompts to try and engage the younger pupils in the story and encourage discussion about the book they chose to read.
P1-4 pupils were engrossed (with some even cuddling in to their older buddy!) while they listened to some very entertaining stories (if you haven’t read “There’s a Bear on my Chair” – look it up!!).
Afterwards, we all watched the Author’s Live event on the Scottish Book Trust website, where we were entertained by James Robertson and Catriona Lexy Campbell who brought ‘The Gruffalo in Scots’ to life.
We had a fab afternoon (and week!) enjoying and sharing books, and developing our love of reading!
