Book Week and Book at Bedtime

BOOK WEEK – Once again we have had a very successful Book Week. This year as you know there was a film based theme for the children to explore. The children discovered new ways to think about writing books using storyboards, and the use of film. The Year 5 and 6 children have videoed some of their books ideas, whilst the Year 3 and 4 children created lots of storyboards that will be displayed in the library. In key stage 1 stories were written about aliens and much more. Our Book at Bedtime was also just as popular as last year with just over 100 children returning to school, despite the weather and traffic problems to come back to listen to stories have hot chocolate and marshmallows in their pyjamas. Many thanks to the parents who came to read to the children as well as the PA members for making the delicious hot chocolate.

The Book Fair was another success and we sold £1000 worth of books which gives us £400 worth of commission to spend on new books for the classrooms. Thank you very much for your tremendous support.

  Year 5 and 6 children also chose the end of Book Week to raise money for their chosen charity which is related to their topic School in a bag. The charity helps children still learn despite losing their schools to earthquakes and other natural disasters. They all came into school as a character from a book or film – many Harry Potter’s, Where’s Wally’s, animals including Scooby Doo, James Bonds, and lots more. They collected £90. Well done.
