Over the summer holidays some of children (and Staff) participated in Extreme Reading.
The creativity of the children at St Giles never ceases to amaze us, as you will see from their photo entries.
Ellie Y1 can be seen reading a number book on a Pirate Ship in Scarborough. Literacy and Numeracy in one book, extreme and multi-tasking!
Her favourite story is Little Red Riding Hood.
Isabelle & Olivia Y1 were relaxing with the Flamingos by the pool, enjoying a good magazine on holiday in Majorca. Their Daddy was reading Harry Potter to them on holiday – but I don’t think their Daddy actually entered? He deserves a sticker though!
Both Olivia and Isabelle’s favourite book is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Sonny Y2 had a fabulous time at the beach in a tent reading Fearless Fitzroy by Kathy Henderson with his Aunt Sally.
Sonny said his favourite book is The Snowman by Raymond Briggs
Daisy Y3 had reading partner, Lucy the snake. Lucy enjoyed Daisy reading The Invisible Bunny by Holly Webb to her. Lucy lives at Matlock Farm Park
Chloe Y3 is enjoying Roald Dahl with her Daddy.
Jolie Y3 took a journey to Ancient Egypt, reading a history book about Mummies. Jolie also had a Pirate peering over her shoulder on a Pirate Ship in Scarborough.
Jolie has enjoyed reading Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame with Mrs Grainger and it is now her favourite book.
Maria Y5 Travelled to France in her motor home and climbed a tree to read Brisingr by Christopher Paolini.
Ellen Y5 isn’t a slow reader but we suspect her tortoise, that she read too, might be. She was sat on her roof reading. She read her tortoise Esio Trot by Roald Dahl after she finished those she started on Horrible Histories – Rotten Romans by Terry Deary
Tilly Y5 was also multi-tasking while extreme reading. She can be seen reading to Harry her dog on a narrow boat while fishing! Harry was enjoying Enid Blyton's Summer Stories
Tilly’s favourite book is Super Cat vs The Chip Thief by Jeanne Willis, however we’re not sure how Harry the Dog would feel about that.
Willows favourite book is
