Uttoxeter Festival of Reading

Wow!  What an amazing time I have had over the last two days!

I was at Picknalls First School on Monday, with about 300 nursery and infant children!  I have never seen so many small children in once place and ALL behaving IMPECCABLY!!  What lovely, responsive children there are in Uttoxeter!

We had great fun joining in with stories and making collages and making a LOT of noise with percussion instruments! 

Yesterday I was based at Windsor Park Middle School, working with about 90 Year 2s and 3s.  We made rhyme machines and made up lots of very silly rhymes.  In the afternoon, I was at the Uttoxeter Cinebowl with about 100 Year 1s 2s and 3s.  I dread to think what anyone outside thought of all the mooing, and baaing that was going on, but we had a great time!!

Thank you to Eleanor Shakespear from Thomas Alleyne's High School for all her hard work organising the festival, and to all the teachers who helped run the activities.  And of course, to all the fantastic children!

  1. Sounds like it was all really successful - well done you! I can't even imagine 300 really little ones all in one place at the same time - you obviously have the magic touch x
