Book Week

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wow! What a week it has been. We have spent the week celebrating books and exploring new authors. Each class has based their learning around a wordless book, exploring the illustrations to find the meaning of the story.

We have bought new books, dressed up as book characters and even met authors. This week we really have all put a lot of effort into reading for enjoyment and long may it last!

We would like to thank our parents who joined Ks1 for a book and breakfast and Ks2 for an afternoon tea and read. It was lovely seeing the children share a good book over a cup of juice and a biscuit. Here is what some of our lovely visitors said:

“It was lovely to come into the classroom and hear my child read. Nice opportunity to see inside Alice’s classroom. Good idea!”

“It was lovely to be able to enjoy some time in school with the children. Great to interact with the teacher and the children – 5 star!”

“Very welcoming. Nice to spend time with the kids. Great biscuits and squash .”

Our book challenge this year was to build a book in a box and by Friday, our hall was filled with them. A lot of thought, time and creativity clearly went into showing favourite characters and settings from the children’s chosen books. Well done to our winners: Indi, Oscar, Georgie, Jessica, Leon, Jazzmine, Donna, Alisha, Ella-May, Ollie and Xander!

Our assembly was quite extraordinary on Friday with a hall packed with princesses, superheroes, wizards, villains and even our very own dictionary! The teachers took their time to have a good look at the characters and choose a winner from each phase. Well done to our winners Tyler, Katie and Holly!
