On Monday, Oak Class were super excited to hear that they were going to have a ‘Mystery Reader’ coming in for the afternoon. They were even more excited when they found out that the mystery reader was… Miss Dudeney’s dad!
Our mystery reader read to the children and afterwards, the children discussed their thoughts on the characters and the plot. We used this as an opportunity to have an open question session with our guest, as all the children had been learning about question words and wanted to practice using them. They also enjoyed asking questions about Miss Dudeney’s dog, Dougal!
After we had finished listening to and discussing the story, the children explored the books in our class library; some children even asked if they could read them with our guest!
We loved having our mystery reader in and the children loved sharing books from the Oak Class library afterwards. Some of the children decided to explore their own books at home and bring them in to share with the class the following day.
Oak Class enjoyed their reading afternoon so much that they voted to have regular book sharing sessions.
Miss Dudeney and Oak Class would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents whom have volunteered to be ‘Mystery Readers’ in Oak Class over the coming weeks.
Please remember to keep it a surprise, if you are coming in!
