Hi all, I have taken on the English leadership role at my school and next year we will be focusing on promoting 'Reading for Pleasure'. As part of this I will be doing a fortnightly assembly about books/reading. The assemblies will be to the whole school (Year 2 to Year 6) and I after suggestions for what I can do/read. I am already thinking about selecting some books from the '100 children's books to read in a lifetime' list but my worry is timing and also engaging all the children. Are there any stories or books you can recommend that appeal to lots of year groups? The stories/books would not need to be finished in one assembly, I quite like the idea of reading an extract to get them interested enough to read the book for themselves. Thanks for the suggestions.
