Pyjamarama Day! 

Due to school closures, we celebrated Pyjamarama Day at home this year.  Lots of us completed the online activities, there were drawing workshops, story times and lots of things to make.

The staff shared a bedtime story with all the children at home too. Click below to watch. 

 

World Book Day 2020

What a fantastic day! Everyone looked brilliant in their costumes and the author Janet Roberts came to visit us. 

 Year 5 Book Club

Some other Year 5 children were desperate to make a Harry Potter Book Club so began one today. It sounds like it is going to be great fun!

 

Boys Book Club

Miss Ryan began the Year 5 Boy's Reading Club today. They have begun the book 'Wonder'by R.J. Palacio.

 

Rescheduled Reading Cafe

Due to the poor weather we held the Reading Cafe after half term instead. The children and parents had a fantastic time. 

 

Reading Cafe

Congratulations to the winners of the Golden Tickets from KS1 for this term's Reading Cafe. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 10th February at 3:30pm!

 

Year 3 Debate

After Christmas it was Year 3's turn to go and visit the Civic Centre for a debate about Climate Change. The mayor was very impressed with our debating skills. We are all now going to try and make small changes in our own lives to reduce our carbon footprint.

 

Autumn Book Fair

Lots of children and adults came to purchase some new books from the book fair, we earned lots of commission for school so we can purchase some new books too!

 

Lunchtime Reading Club

The Lunchtime Reading Club began at the end of November. The children have enjoyed having a quiet, cosy space to read during lunchtime. They have enjoyed a selection of books, newspapers and comics. These will continue during Tuesday lunchtime, on a timetable basis, for the remainder of the year.
