New books thanks to The Foyle Foundation!
The children at Okeford Fitzpaine Primary School have been lucky enough to receive several new titles for their library through a successful grant application with The Foyle Foundation. The school would like to express their thanks to The Foyle Foundation for considering their application and granting them £1500 to spend on books which will help all the children across the school with their reading skills and passion for literacy.
The children have already started taking advantage of the new books and enjoying titles such as How To Train Your Dragon, Winnie and Wilbur and Jaspers Beanstalk. Along with the books the school have purchased several read and respond packs for the whole school with a mix of planning resources, guided reading sessions and teaching books to deliver inspiring lessons based on favourite stories.
