On Tuesday, Miss Heale and Miss Kennedy-Alexander were invited to visit Strand’s favourite bookshop, The Alligator’s Mouth, in Richmond. The staff there were hosting a ‘Teachers’ Night’, and Strand teachers were the first on the guest list as they know how keen we are on reading as a school. Miss Heale and Miss K-A came away from the event with a haul of new titles to bulk up our stock, particularly lighter chapter books and non-fiction titles, and a host of new ideas as to how to continue to boost reading for pleasure in our school. Watch this space! Thank you to Raimundo, Chyna, Louis, Anais, Katty, Bella, Maya and Nikhil who helped to unpack the new books and delivered them to their first home in Year 4 and 5.
