A novel approach to reading week
MORE than 300 pupils arrived at Hamstreet Primary School dressed as their favourite book characters on Friday.
The event formed part of the school’s annual reading week, which aims to encourage and celebrate reading.
The chosen characters ranged from Dr Seuss’s Cat in the Hat to Thomas the Tank Engine and Harry Potter.
During the week the school also introduced a Reading Attack, where every child received a one-to-one reading session.
