Reading Week Overview 2017

In Monday’s assembly Mrs Wilson launched Reading Week; she sent us on a mission to find a special book that would change our lives. Older pupils and parents shared books with younger children in school and all the children enjoyed this bonding experience.

Y3 and Y5 were on class trips linked to their reading. Y3 were learning How to Be Pirates at Space to Learn, whilst Y5 were learning bout Harry Potter and how to make brooms and apple punch at the Forest School .

On Tuesday Y4 created and performed play scripts at Space to Learn ; they performed plays based on How to be a Pirate in front of a green screen. Nursery and Reception children visted the Forest School and learnt how to make Stick Men.

On Wednesday , at Space to Learn, class 9 travelled by boat to the cursed island of Samson and met some ghostly apparitions. Their amazing writing included simile, personification and metaphor.

Thursday was a fun-packed day full of celebrations of books. We came dressed as a whole range of book characters, many of us remembered the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth and both staff and children alike became his characters for the day. In the afternoon teachers swapped classes and shared stories; this was also very enjoyable. By popular request, Y5 shared books with the wider community visiting Queens Meadow home.

On Friday our assembly celebrated children’s regular reading at home and the Book Wizard made a special delivery of books to these children. Parents visited again to see their children receive certificates for reading achievements.

Trips were still happening on Friday with Y2 visiting the Forest School, and learning about Jack and the Beanstalk, class 10 acting out Gracie and Daniel’s trip to Samson and Y1 making Stick Men and nests for swans at the Forest School.

A busy week celebrating reading in and out of school.
