Our Damers butterfly is a great reminder of how we grow and change during our time at Damers, and of how we emerge as a true learner. This could be the difference between how we first nervously tip our toe in the swimming pool and then eventually swim a length or maybe how we first attempt to hold a pencil and then eventually learn to write with beautiful joined handwriting.
As it was World Book Day on Thursday we decided to focus on the transformation that happens to us as readers during our time in school. We agreed that reading is really hard at the very beginning but once you learn how to do it it can transport you on adventures to many many places. Joe Jeff has emerged as an amazing ‘Reading Butterfly’ and is one of our stand-out members of our boys’ book clubs. Joe has persevered with his reading and can now get completely lost in a book. He is an inspiration to any struggling reader and if you watch him with a book in his hand you will see the true magic of reading! Well done Joe.
