Book Week 2019
We had a great week last week celebrating everything to do with reading, books and poems!
The children had assemblies every day where they could read a book or have a book read to them. They were able to swap teachers and hear the book of their choice and also to read with friends from another class. Each class learnt a poem which they performed with great enthusiasm in Friday's assembly; we slurped spaghetti with Reception and wondered If... with Year 6 and everything in between!
Each year group had a book that they focused on throughout the week:
Reception - The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Year 1 - The Dragon Tamer's Castle
Year 2 - The Tear Thief
Year 3 - The Firework Maker's Daughter
Year 4 - Iron Man
Year 5 - Wonder
Year 6 - There's a boy in the girls bathroom
The teachers got involved too, taking silly photographs of their EXTREME reading and of course dressing up on World Book Day. The children looked amazing in their costumes so thank you for the thought that you gave it.
Thank you too for those who attended our Book Swap and Booky Breakfast, we really loved seeing our school so full of people reading.
If you would like to look at photographs from the week please have a look at our Gallery Page.
We would love to see all of this reading carrying on, so please pick up a book and enjoy!
