The whole school enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 6th March
The whole school enjoyed celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 6th March, by dressing up as a character from a historically themed text. There were some fabulous costumes displayed from well known literary classics and we’d like to thank all parents for supporting their children in creating costumes of some much loved characters from historical fiction.
Also this week, we took the opportunity to really raise the profile and importance of reading for information and pleasure by combining our learning in Literacy lessons with some fun activities based around reading.
“Reading Family Fortunes” was a great success with children from all classes answering questions about reading and stories and won books as a reward for their efforts.
We enjoyed learning and singing, “Pick up a Book” and marvelled at the story telling abilities of some of our teachers during assemblies this week.
An extremely talented story teller visited our school and entertained the children in KS1 and KS2 with traditional tales, hopefully inspiring us to write stories of our own.
An “Extreme Reading” competition was launched, inviting readers of all ages to be photographed reading in an unusual location. There are prizes at stake and it’s not too late to enter!
Finally- Thank you to all parents who regularly read with their children. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
