This week has definitely been a Book Week to remember. The children have enjoyed a huge variety of activities including: book sharing with other children; writing their own poems inspired by woodland and village walks; performing brilliant poems of their own choosing (and sometimes their own writing too); dressing up as favourite book characters; wearing PJs and bringing well-behaved teddy bears to listen to bedtime stories; recording book reviews using green screen technology; and working alongside a published poet (thank you Bernie Howley) to create our own whole-school poems! Make sure you take a moment to check the class blogs and reading blog to see the full extent of what’s been going on.
We’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to Miss Duffy, our English subject leader, for her hard work in planning Book Week and inspiring us all. Thank you also to the willing volunteers who have lent their time and energy in school during the week—assisting in classes, on walks, in the library and reading bedtime stories. A special mention too for our Foundation Governor judges, Mrs Drew and Mrs Brown, for their important part in the Book Week Competition. Finally, thank you to all parents to have supported our week through assisting with the practising of poems and creation of costumes. The combined efforts of everyone involved have made our week very special!
