Lavender Lodge loves reading

06 January 2023

Pupils and staff from Lavender Lodge School recently took part in an exciting competition to create an engaging and interesting book corner within their classrooms.

On completion of their project, the Reading Committee and a small group of School Councillors took a tour of each class to view the newly created spaces to choose a winner. The judges found coming to a decision difficult as everyone had worked on creating the most magical and enticing cosy spaces to relax and read.

After much deliberation, they chose Bond Street Class as the overall winner, as pupils had made the most out of decorating their area, while Paddington Class commended for their creativity using fairy lights. 

The judges agreed that everyone had worked so hard and put so much effort into this project that they also deserved recognition, giving away special mention certificates for 'best transformation', 'cosiest space' and 'best book selection.' 

Here are some of the comments made:

Class Teacher and English Lead, Sara Roditi, commented:

"It was wonderful and very inspiring to see such an amazing effort from everyone; seeing the pupils enjoy their new reading corners and reading for pleasure is magical."

Head Teacher Lorraine Titchener shared her thoughts:

"It is amazing seeing how the book corners transformed the classrooms; I love seeing pupils already using them and feeling very comfortable!"

One judge commented: 

"I wanted Paddington to win because it was the best. I love the lights and the artificial grass carpet; it feels nice, and I like reading there."

Well done, everyone!
