Book Week 2016

BOOK WEEK – During last week the children concentrated on books and stories that were written by British Authors.

Here is a report from two Year 6 girls: Almondsbury School did a fantastic job of our yearly book week, last week. Here is what a few selected classes chose to do…

 Reception took part in a re-enactment of ‘Kippers birthday party’ after reading the book. They took part in many similar activities, a few are: Decorating cakes; dancing; wearing party hats and making bunting. While they were doing this, Year 3&4 recited a poem that described Britain as a recipe. They also invented actions to ‘The British’ written by Benjamin Zephraniam. Year 1&2 wrote and read about the ‘Snail and the Whale’ by Julia Donaldson using their thinking hats (coloured black, yellow, white and red). They also learnt about ‘Lost and found’ by Oliver Jeffers and drew pictures of the ‘Snail and the whale’.

 Year 5&6 based their week on Rudyard Kipling. They wrote poems and created their own just so stories (Not to mention the jungle-like corridor outside their classrooms!)Some children came after school to watch an old TV series called ‘Jackanory’.

In conclusion, this may have been the best book week yet! We are extremely excited to unravel the mystery of next year! Written by Hattie Peake and Maya Bradley.   

The Book Fayre was extremely popular, as ever, and we sold £1120 worth of books, which is fantastic. Thank you for your support as this amount gives us £600 to spend on books for school from the commission.
