Seven Stories Partnership

Seven Stories is the National Centre for Children's Books, so when St John's wanted to do more to foster a love of reading, we thought who better to help us? We became part of the 'Hooks into Books' scheme, where a special parcel of books arrives each term for us to share and enjoy. These are books that might be by new authors or maybe a little 'different', so it means our school library is varied and keeps on growing. It's really exciting when the books arrive and are unwrapped in assembly...
 
A group of parents from our reception class took part in the 'Families Reading Together' programme during spring 2018 and enjoyed a trip together to Seven Stories, as well as learning how to share stories with their children and develop their vocabulary.
