Aspiring Readers

This year we really want to encourage children, parents and everyone working at the school to be Aspiring Readers who enjoy reading and benefit from doing so. Throughout the year, we will be introducing a number of fun activities and initiatives designed to support reading at school and at home.  But why read? How does reading benefit us? What can it do? Amongst the many reasons for becoming a great reader, these ten stand out.

 

Reading can:

 

  1. Improve your brain
  2. Reduce stress
  3. Improve your memory
  4. Improve your imagination
  5. Build vocabulary
  6. Improve your writing skills
  7. Improve your communication skills
  8. Improve focus and concentration
  9. Improve your health
  10. Help you sleep better.

Then one night the skyline of the moor is lit up with gun flashes, and the distant crump of bombing miles away brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace. When a German bomber crashes, the boys feel they should hate the airmen inside. But one of them saves David's life...
