|World Book Day|
Please could I encourage all parents and children to ask if you would like your reading books changed as this can be easily arranged. Also, would it be possible to please send photos of your children’s reading records on a Monday or Friday to show evidence that you/your child has read 3 times that week. We want you to get credit for your achievements!
As it is World Book Day today, please have a look at this fascinating video by Stephen Fry focusing on the enormous benefits having the subtitles on when you are watching the TV has for your reading.

2:45 – 3:00 Story Time (below)
Vince by Sarah Crossan
Once upon a time there was an ugly duckling
with grey frayed feathers
who made sounds so awful and so often
that everyone else living around the pond
asked Alexa to yank up the volume on their speakers
so Stormzy could drown out the sqauwk
of poor old Vince trying to sing.
Yes, Vince was very ugly indeed
but his brothers and sisters loved him just the same
because sometimes siblings can be kind like that
And yes, Vince was a terrible singer,
but his mother and father believed he was perfect
because parents often feel that way
even about their noisiest ducklings.
So Vince grew up and stayed just as he was mostly,
turning into a very ugly drake.
But he didn’t care because many things
mattered more than what he wore.
Vince was the smartest of the flock
who studied medicine over the big lake
and when he returned swinging his stethoscope
and mending broken wings,
everyone called him a quacking hero.
Because that was exactly what Vince was.
