Reading stories in class - great news

Writers for children always receive letters from children and schools. We don't all always manage to reply to all of them. Sometimes, the responses or questions are amazing and so very acute. I got one of those today from a Year 3 responding to 'Uncle Gobb and the Dread Shed'. Judging by the open-ended far-ranging questions and thoughts, that's a class who are having a fantastic time, reading and responding to books without the weight of SATs and/or SPaG tests hanging too heavily on them.

How cheering.
