On Friday June 21st, Year 7 students participated in a Reading for Pleasure workshop run by Seven Stories in Newcastle. Students had the opportunity to discuss their reading preferences, as well as spend some time looking and engaging with a range of books, many of which have now been purchased for our school library. Everyone enjoyed the day, including Molly from Seven Stories, who said: “I thoroughly enjoyed visiting year 7 at Freebrough Academy. The staff at the school were organised and really welcoming, the children’s enthusiasm and respectful behaviour made my day a real pleasure!”
We look forward to more reading events in the autumn term.
