Book Week

'Book Week' Home Learning Ideas

Visits and places to explore: (the links in green are free attractions!)

  • The local library always has fantastic workshops for children to join in with and many are completely free! Why not also spend some time exploring some of the amazing books (for both children and adults!) that the library will loan you, again with no charge!
  • Reading challenge - each place you visit, whether popping to the shops, going on a picnic or walking the dog, encourage your child to take a book and pose for a photo! You can then spend time comparing and finding the most bizarre place you caught them reading!

*Please note as much as we encourage these wonderful visits and think they are fantastic learning experiences, if you wish to visit these please do so at weekends, evenings or during the holidays - we really don't want your little ones to miss any school learning!*
