We are the Clementines. A reading group. Our name comes from a book we read in assembly called ‘Bears Don’t Read’. Our goal is to try and encourage children in the school to do this more and for them to get better and better at it. This group holds a lot of clubs on lunchtimes involving storytelling, arts and crafts plus lots more fun and exciting activities for Years 3 and 4. But we do have an opportunity for Years 5 and 6 to get involved as well because the Clementines will be asking the teachers for some time to ask the children about a few of their favourite books so we can order them and with help from the Librarians, put them in the Library for them to read in school.
We did an assembly for the whole school (see photo) to tell the whole school about our group and how they can get involved.
We are also making a display in the entrance to the hall so all the amazing things the children make in our group will be able to be seen by everyone who walks by. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope that you will be interested in the clubs and will be encouraged to read and encourage others to read too.
