Books have certainly been a huge help for us all during the last 12 months, and this is being recognised at Cedar Mount Academy, where the ‘Read With Us’ initiative has just been launched.
Every day, a member of staff will post a video of themselves reading aloud for around 15 mins, with a wide variety of texts, from The Emperor’s New Clothes to Goodbye Mr Tom. There have been some great online conversations around historical poetry too. The sessions aim to provide a little relaxation and respite from online learning. This is a brilliant example of ways to socialise and support one another outside of lesson timetables.
