What is a Mystery Reader?

At Lime Tree Primary School, we strive to foster a love of reading both in school and at home.  Last year we implemented a very successful mystery reader scheme, which we would like to continue this academic year.  The aim of "Mystery Reader" is to show children that adults love reading too so we would like to invite parents, grandparents or other family members to come into their child's class to read a children's story.   This could be a book you particularly enjoyed reading when you were growing up or a current children's book brought from home, or selected from the school library. 

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

Please ensure that the school office have your correct email address, as this will be required for you to log on.
