OMS Reading Newsletter

Welcome to our first reading newsletter of the new academic year and our first ever one! Whether your child hasn’t been able to put a book down during lockdown and summer, or if you’ve struggled to get them to pick one up, this newsletter is for you!

This newsletter will be released every term and is a chance to find out about new, high quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry as well as a chance to get tips and up to date information about helping your child with their reading journey. 

As always, your support is hugely appreciated,

Miss Quinn (English Co-ordinator)

Kindness in the community

Last week we were contacted by two members of the public regarding some of our pupils, Sidney, Jack , Chloe and Jasmine, regarding their kindness and exemplary behaviour on Friday whilst in Prudhoe Riverside Park. We are very proud of all four children for being such good role models to the younger children and representing the school in such a positive way.

Extreme Reading

Thank you for all the wonderful entries into the Extreme Reading Challenge! We had some interesting and unusual locations for reading from the inside of a suitcase to a top of a mountain and even on a horse! After much deliberation, we simply could not decide on an overall winner; the entries were all excellent! A big well done to everyone who sent in a photo. Look out for our next Literacy competition coming soon!
