Mystery Reader

At Brentnall Academy, we strive to foster a love of reading both in school and at home. The aim of the scheme is to show children that adults love reading too so we would like to invite parents, grandparents or other family members to read a children’s book to their child’s class.

As current restrictions do not allow for parents to enter the building, we are asking all ‘Mystery Readers’ to read the book on a video call via Microsoft Teams online.

This could be a book you particularly enjoyed reading when you were growing up or a current children’s book which you have at home.

In order for the class to gain the full impact and excitement of the reader experience, please keep it a secret and a mystery, even from your own child!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my mystery reading moment, loved more that the kids enjoyed the story and I am more than happy to support Brentnall with any enhanced learning approach. I’m sure this is a fun and encouraging lesson for the children and a great idea from the teachers.” – Mystery Reader A
