We are delighted to be participating in ‘Doncaster Stories’, a 10 year community driven campaign to boost literacy skills in the town. It is delivered by the National Literacy Trust in partnership with Doncaster Opportunity Area.
Mrs Young delivered a special assembly recently, at which she and some adults shared their favourite stories. Each child in KS2 was delighted to be given a free Roald Dahl book. This also contained a bookmark, which feature reading tips to encourage children to read in their own time, and to read more widely.
KS2 children and adults have also been nominating their favourite children’s books. The most popular 100 will be published into an interactive list and will be available to borrow from local libraries, with activities to follow. More submissions can be made online at doncasterstories.org.uk before 1st November 2019. Please take the time to contribute as the school with the most entries will receive a set of free Roald Dahl books for the library
