Reading Breakfast

Posted: 18/01/22

We were delighted this morning to welcome parents to the first Reading Breakfast at Trenode Primary.  Parents were invited in to school by Mrs Pike half an hour early to join us for breakfast and to read a favourite  book with their child.  It was a beautiful sunrise over the valley as everyone was arriving and the atmosphere was wonderful as the children settled in the warmth of the school hall to read.  There was toast and orange juice in abundance and families were joined by other children as they arrived for the start of the school day.  We finished it off with a whole school act of worship.  Our focus this week is on well-being and today, we talked about the simple things in life that make us happy (like a beautiful sunrise) and how showing happiness, even when we might be feeling a little down, helps to lift us all.  The perfect start to a school day and one of many more we hope!
