School webteam: October 2015
Reading is like having a magic carpet that transports you to new worlds, introduces you to wondrous characters whose fate you share and whose triumphs you celebrate. In assembly the children met ' Jack and the Flum Flum Tree' written by Julia Donaldson. They used the objects Granny gave him to solve problems and help him to reach his destination, The Isle of Blowyernose. Mrs Richardson shared her favourite books and the children prepared to enter a Bookworm Quiz as a Reading Week challenge.
In Art, the children examined the covers of their favourite books and used a range of media to create storybook covers on a canvas.
Thanks to parents and grandparents who visited school on Thursday afternoon to share their favourite book or poem with the children.
On Friday, the children in KS1 and KS2 had an exciting time following story trails around the school grounds. Amethyst class were particularly lucky as they found a very Hungry Caterpillar whilst participating in a trail based on the Hungry Caterpillar story by Eric Carle. Meanwhile, the children in KS2 tested their knowledge of the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
Thanks to the 32 families who participated in the Bookworm Quiz. There were several children in each key stage who answered each question correctly. Their names were placed into draw and the winners were announced in assembly on Friday. Congratulations to all those who participated.
