Share a Million Stories
This year Kings Worthy Primary School are taking part in the 'Share a Million Stories' campaign.
This week the children will be bringing home a reading record as part of the 'Share a Million Stories'. This is a nationwide campaign to promote story-sharing and to help create readers for life. The idea is for children to share a story for ten minutes and then to log it on their reading record. Sharing a story includes, reading with a sibling, parent, family member, pet etc. And it can be anything from non-fiction, fiction, e-book, poetry or graphic novel for example. Each class has a sharing story poster and there will be an ongoing competition between each class. The class that shares the most stories within the time frame (Thursday 27th February to Sunday 29th March) wins a reading related prize for their class.
Spending just 10 minutes a day reading and sharing stories with children can make a crucial difference to their outcome and it's fun for all involved. You can read together anywhere and everywhere, from breakfast to bedtime! In the park, on the train, on the sofa, on a plane - reading and sharing stories can happen anywhere any time. Thank you for your help sharing stories with your children at home. Hopefully we can reach our target of 5,000 story shares!
