The launch of the Global Reading Adventure at Copnor Primary was great fun! During the day I spent time with each year group (almost 700 children) and their teachers, talking about different types of non-fiction they could read on their individual adventures whilst earning points for their class teams.
One of the best bits of the day was being able to spend time admiring their class compatas (multi terrain vehicles with air, water and submarine travel capabilities) because I did have doubts whether this compata concept of mine might be a step too far on their adventure. Luckily the students and staff got on board straight away (pun intended) and decorated and covered their class compatas with self portraits (see gallery below).
After introducing the reading adventure passports with their maps and all the activities, it didn’t take long for the students to get to grips with how to make the most of their reading adventure passports which meant we all had even longer to enjoy a bit of reading and sharing of new facts learned. I look forward to hearing about where they have travelled on their reading journeys when I spend the day at the school in March.
Why not join us on your own nonfiction reading adventure? May your reading journeys take you on a tour of many fascinating facts.
