Drop Everything and Read is an exciting new literacy initiative where a bell will ring and every pupil in our school will ‘drop everything’ and read for 15 minutes.

This initiative is exciting as it offers pupils the chance to see what each other is reading, what teachers are reading and encourages them to see reading as a leisure activity which can be done whenever they have a spare moment. 

It will take place during the last week in January (Monday 25 January – Friday 29 January). The bell will ring once a day at different times in that week and the whole school will be reading!

Please see Mrs Whitehurst for further information


“You must bring a book you are reading to take part.

In your planner, on the date for :
Monday 25 January
Tuesday 26 January
Wednesday 27 January
Thursday 28 January
Friday 29 January

Write: Bring a fiction book.”
— Message from Mrs Whitehurst to pupils
