Reading Festival 2014

Once again, local schools were invited to the annual reading festival held to participate in presenting a story to the audience of all of the families of the attending schools.

The Dove were very proud to take along children from both of our key-stages classes (children from years 1, 2, 3 and 4) to perform our version of 'Rhino, What Rhino' by one of the school's favourite authors, Caryl Hart.

Nerves were high before the big event and the children proudly supported each other and gave a fantastic presentation of the story high up on the stage at the JCB club! (And all from memory - that's 571 words in total!)

A special congratulations to two of the school's budding authors. A pupil from year 4 and a pupil from year 3 both won awards for best original short stories submitted to the reading festival organisers - congratulations on being wonderful writers!

A huge well done to all of the children that attended, and a big thank you to the parents for supporting the children and school in being able to attend this event.
