Reading/Story Enrichment Sessions

“At the Vale of Evesham School, we aim to promote a love for reading and sharing stories for all of our pupils. All pupils will access at least one enrichment morning/afternoon each term. The purpose of these sessions is to celebrate stories, books, poems and authors with their peers beyond their class groups but within their curriculum strand.

Throughout the year there are also nationally recognised days that include a celebration of stories and books such as ‘World Book Day’ and ‘Black History Month’; these are also celebrated in addition to our timetabled enrichment sessions. Please see below, the information regarding these enrichment sessions. Photos and videos of our reading enrichment sessions will be added to this part of the website over the course of the year.”
