School Visit: Seely Juniors, Nottingham

I had another awesome school visit today. This time it was to Robin Hood Country in Nottingham.  Seely Juniors, on the outskirts of the city,  is one of those large primary schools with long corridors where you can easily get lost. Luckily I was escorted everywhere by some of Seely’s finest. I worked with the Year 3s and 4s in the morning and then had a Premier League Reading Stars session in the afternoon.  The morning was great – we had a mixture of five-headed sharks and exploding chocolate trees on our desert islands and some fierce ghosts who’d met untimely deaths in our haunted house story.

The afternoon, though, was all about football.  A specially selected group of Y4s are undertaking the PLRS Challenge. Over the next ten weeks they’ll be covering  all sorts of exciting reading tasks. Today was their first session and I was their ‘fixture.’ The time went way too fast but I know from the response and enthusiasm that the Seely Juniors  Reading Stars are going to go straight to the top of the league.

Excitement mounts as the Reading Stars wait for Mrs French to dish out the goods.

Great to see a mixture of girls and boys participating in the challenge. 

Thank you to Mrs French for inviting me in to school and to all the pupils and staff who made me feel welcome.  I hope you read plenty of titles from this little series during the ten weeks (ahem)…
