World Book Day: The children looked fabulous in their costumes and thoroughly enjoyed all the lovely activities they took part in during the day. Mrs Junak from School Aid came in to do assembly to explain about the work the charity does. Many thanks to you for providing the costumes and to Mrs Jones for all her hard work in coordinating the day . The book swap has been very successful and we hope the children enjoy reading their new book. There were lots of books also taken by School Aid to give to the children in Africa. Thank you to the parents who came in to help this afternoon.
Pencil Project: Running alongside the book swap we have had some pencil cases filled with stationary brought in. If you would like to participate, please bring any filled pencil cases to the school office and we will give them to School Aid at a later date.
Story Swap: Swap a Story is our new reading initiative for this term. A little like the Reading miles challenge last year, we are encouraging children to read for 10 minutes every night. As children read each night, a parent should tick off the relevant day in the appropriate week. The next day in class children will have a story swap moment in order for them to share something about the story that they read e.g. talking about their favourite character or the best part of the story or most exciting part. The story swap moment will then encourage the children to do their daily reading so they can properly participate. If Children manage to tick off all 6 circles for the week they will get a sticker awarded by the class teacher. At the end of the term, we will collect in the booklets and will be awarding the most successful story ‘swappers’ with certificates and they will be entered into a prize draw. Please note the children DO NOT need to bring a book into school.
Sapphire and Pearl Classes: Please remember to go to the School Hall for registration on Monday morning.
