“Once upon a time..”

June 09, 2017 | Junior Preparatory

The corridors in the Junior Prep were filled with many moments of excited whispers and screams of letter sounds, words and sentences read with much expression and fluency.

Our Grade R children have thoroughly enjoyed the implementation of our new phonic approach, Read Write Inc.  The excited rhymes of “Maisey, Mountain, Mountain” are heard from the playground, no matter whether the children are cycling on their scooters or dressing up as one of their superheroes.  We are beyond proud of our Grade 1 children as they are beginning to read sentences and books and we are able to see many of the stories mimicked on the playground.  Our Grade 2 children began with the Reading Granny programme this week. The playground and classrooms were filled with our special Grannies and Grandpa’s enjoying the many special stories that our Grade 2 children read to them. 

The cherry on the cake was that "Hooked on Books" visited us on Wednesday. Each child in the JP got to enjoy many of the wonderful stories that the crew of "Hooked on Books" brought to life.

As Dr Seuss says: “You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” We wish you a wonderful weekend filled with many magical moments in text.
