Northway had a 'House themed' World Book Day. Our children dressed up as a character from our house teams, either Dahl, Rowling, Walliams or Shakespeare. We had some wonderful outfits and activities based on our house authors books.
Stephen Waterhouse Author and Illustrator Visits Northway
Stephen Waterhouse, an author and illustrator, came to Northway. He delivered a fabulous whole school assembly to inspire our children to write and illustrate books. He then delivered workshops to Years two and Three, who produced artwork around a theme, which will be used to create a piece of artwork for our school.
Dads and Lads Reading Club
Dads and Lads is a fabulous way for Northway's Dads to read with their boys and keep them inspired to keep reading. Our Dads have been fabulous role models for the children, sharing stories they love with their children. Even some of our teachers have got involved, reading with boys who would like to come and join our club. Come and join us for some reading fun!
The BFG visits Northway
Was that a Whizzpopper I heard? We had a fabulous morning when the BFG came to Northway to share the story of the BFG. With props and sound effects the children were amazed. The laughter didn't stop, as we got lost in the story of the BFG and Sophie on their journey.
Every week our trained Reading Revolutionaries take younger children throughout the school, to help inspire and motivate them to read. The children use books just above their reading ability to support challenging them to read more complex texts, while the Reading Revolutionaries support and guide them.

Northway received the Gold Reading Quality Mark, at this year's ceremony. A wonderful success, as the children and staff have worked together to develop a love of reading within our school and the wider community. It was a fantastic way to celebrate all the fantastic work we have achieved so far. Looking forward to all future events.
