We love to read at Oldmixon!
We had a great day celebrating World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters.
Here are some of our fantastic book in a jar entries.

World Book Day 2022
The children had a visit from the magnificent Fred from Pets as Therapy today, who listened to some of the children read. He will be visiting us throughout the year when more children will have the chance to read to him.
Today, Tuesday 5th October 2021, we had an inspiring visit from American author Jay Joseph. Joseph is a teacher in Bristol, who always wanted to write, and has recently released two books: Fire Boy and Pants on Fire.
We found out that Joseph's passion for books started with comic books, when he was a child, and he has always loved superhero stories!
At the end of the talk, we were able to purchase his books and were lucky enough to have then signed.
Children's National Book Awards
We are part of the testing group for Children's National Book awards. This is a new venture for us and we have now allocated our second set of lovely books. Our children have been reading and reviewing all these new lovely books. We look forward to sharing some reviews and recommendations in the next few weeks!
Great excitement as our Year 6 Reading Champions got their new books for reviewing and voting on for National Children's Book Awards!
We provide a range of opportunities to ensure all of our children develop a life-long love of reading.
Every Friday during our virtual celebration assembly children who have excelled in their learning are rewarded with a brand new book. We hope that eventually, over time, children will leave with a personal 'library' of books.
Year group story time
Whatever next story.
