My earliest memory of being read to as a child was my mum reading ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr.  I absolutely loved the story and couldn’t hear it enough times!  It is about a girl called Sophie who is having tea with her mother when the doorbell rings.  In walks a tiger, and Sophie and her mother end up having tea with him.  The book captured my imagination and allowed me to enter this imaginary world of tigers eating all the cakes and drinking all the water in the house.

Next week, we are going to focus on the Power of Reading.  Mr Maurice will set the scene in his assembly where he will talk students through his own journey from a reluctant reader with diagnosed dyslexia, to an avid reader who always has a book on the go. The key message is that, once on the path to reading, all can immerse themselves in the wonderful world of books. At Harris Academy Wimbledon we will be encouraging all students on their journey to becoming great readers through our Friday Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) time, where House Groups will be reading together with no other purpose in mind that just pure, unadulterated enjoyment.  

Please can I encourage you to support your children to read and to go and see our wonderful librarian, Ms Nylinder,  if they would like some suggestions.

We are still on track to move into the new building straight after half term.  I hope to have the final confirmation very soon and then I will write to you with all of the details.  Next Friday (2nd October) is an INSET day.
