Celebration of Reading!
On Friday 15th June we spent the day doing fun reading activities as part of our Celebration of Reading day at Blenhem! We were lucky enough to have real-life author Sibel Beadle visit! She did a Q&A, read us one of her fantastic stories in assembly, and even worked with several classes on their story writing skills. Sibel revealed some of her author secrets, such as going on a long dog walk in the woods before writing her books in her favourite restaurant, and revealing to us that her first book took 2 whole years to complete!
At the end of the day Sibel was available for a 1 on 1 meet and greet in the playground and personally signed some of her beautiful books.
As well as the author visit, we also took part in the big Blenheim book swap! It was great seeing old, pre-loved books going to new homes.
Finally, in the afternoon our parents and carers were allowed to join in the fun, and came into school for some reading activities. It was lovely to see so many visitors around the school! It was a brilliant, busy day with so many fun and exciting things to do!
