Tersia’s Year 5 class staged a school assembly explaining why it is important that we read. Some of the ideas included to improve our vocabulary, and to help to make us smarter.
The Year 5 pupils asked their friends to think how life would be like without books, or a world without words. This led to the thought that books are a gift for our brains.
Our assembly also looked at how often we should read. The Year 5 research showed that on average people read for six and a half hours a week.
Some acting took place in the assembly. A small classroom session was set up. Our drama demonstrated the benefits of taking an interest in books.
The pupils then put on a short quiz to test the knowledge of our friends. Posters were displayed to help share our knowledge about reading.
