Two primary schools on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent have been overwhelmed after their efforts to promote reading went viral.
Created to launch a reading initiative to promote reading in school and at home, both Thistle Hill in Minster on Sea and Richmond Academy in Sheerness have had their fun reading themed music videos viewed over 20 thousand times in the past two weeks.
The videos show staff and children reading books in a variety of different places across the schools whilst they dance along to reading inspired lyrics.
Both schools have taken inspiration from CBeebies to share clips of their EYFS teachers reading bedtime stories as part of an initiative to promote a love of literature which have been well received by parents of the schools and the local community.
The schools plan to release a video every two weeks for children and their parents to enjoy at home. The school’s websites will then dedicate a whole page to the bank of videos so that parents and children can access them at any time.
