Kindles are…GO!

The latest news on the Myrtle Park Primary ‘Kindle’ project is that we will be focussing on engaging readers as opposed to tracking attainment in the first instance.  The reasoning being that by getting children involved in reading, the progress will naturally follow…it’s a ‘no brainer’ really!

The next steps are to complete an on-line ‘Poll Daddy’ survey to set a baseline for children’s attitudes towards reading, based on the Ofsted questioning for Key Stages 1 and 2 and see if they have changed by the end of the project at Easter 2012.

    Hi Myrtle Park,

    Thanks for the update. I’m going to be presenting at a Teachmeet tomorrow – the focus on my presentation will be ‘Engaging readers with Kindles’. I’m extremely interested in the reaction from the pupils. Keep us informed. I wonder if I could come and interview some of the children in the next couple of weeks?

    Hi I am a student currently doing a project that requires me to find a picture of a Kindle and I was wondering if you would give me permission to use you photo for my project.

    Thank you!
