Book Week at Woodcroft

This week was Book Week at Woodcroft. Every year we have a week-long celebration of reading that coincides with World Book Day. We select a focus text that is then studied by the whole school. This year it was ‘The Secret Garden’ by Francis Hodgson Burnett.

The week began for KS1 and KS2 with a wonderful, live performance of ’The Secret Garden’ by our friends at M&M Theatre. Year 6 also enjoyed a stagecraft workshop as part of their Arts Award qualification.

We also created our very own Woodcroft Secret Garden in the foyer, and pupils had a special book study project to carry out.

Book Week was also the official launch of our new reading curriculum called ‘The Reading Rainbow’. The Reading Rainbow helps children develop rich language and knowledge about books.
