We are very excited to announce that Year 3 and 4 will produce their own Pantomime this term. Please save these dates in your diaries: Wednesday 18 March at 13:30 and Thursday 19 March at 18:00. More details about costumes and tickets to be sent later in the term.

Book week is coming - we need your support!

Below are a number of activities you and your child might like to participate in…


Book swap

Children can bring in ONE story book that they no longer want/have outgrown to swap for one that they do! Books must be in good ‘swapable’ condition, please! Please note that we cannot accept baby board books, sticker books, comics or colouring books. Story/information books only please! We will be swapping with children from Year 3 and 4, so please consider whether the book is suitable for a 7 - 9 year old.

**All books can be given to your child’s class teacher, we have a collection already started in our Year 3 rooms.

All books must be in by Monday 2 February


Customised-reading

Children to take photos of themselves reading a book in a place that matches the content of their book! For example, a picture of your child reading Charlie & the Chocolate Factory eating chocolate or reading Dear Zoo at the zoo!

**All photos can be emailed to

karen.bintcliffe@britishschool.nl or

felicity.macdonald@britishschool.nl

All photos must sent in by Monday 2 February


Read a story in your mother-tongue

Parents who would like to share a story in another language or from their culture are welcome to read to a class during Book Week. Please email claire.scott@britishschool.nl to arrange a time and class or alternatively, speak to Mr Pilling or Miss Allen if you'd prefer to just read to our Year 3 group.

Please contact Ms Scott before Monday 2 February


Tweet-a-book

Children/parents who would like to share book reviews/titles/extracts they’ve read during Book Week to a daily ‘feed’ displayed on the board in the Atrium can email them directly to craig.mcneil@britishschool.nl or write their ‘tweet’ and post it in the postbox. There will be a postbox in the Atrium all week. Tweets must be no more than 140 characters.

Monday 9 – Friday 13 February
