Colchester Drop Everything and Read

Today in Colchester class we dropped everything for D.E.A.R. time (Drop Everything and Read).  This means that we stop what we are doing and read.  This could be a fiction book, a non-fiction book, a magazine or a comic. Some of the students told me why it is important to learn how to read: one said "So you can read the shopping list" another said "Reading helps you with spelling" and I really liked this one " So I knew where my bus is going to stop". Well done Colchester Class
