  • Please ensure your child has 2 changes of spare clothes kept in school, including underwear, socks, tights, t shirts, trousers and tops. A number of children are also missing a separate rain coat . It would really help your child to access all areas of learning if they have protective wet weather clothing. Thank you.

Book Week

Here are some activities for Book Week (3 – 7 March)

Book bus stop all children can bring in a book that they no longer want to swap for one they do! Tokens will be given to children who bring in unwanted books that, in turn can be ‘spent’ to take a new book home. A faux bus stop will be set up in the atrium (large cardboard bus on moveable display boards) with a bench and a basket of books for children to read during the course of the week so that children can stop, and read a book at the bus stop! Time will be allocated for children to ‘spend’ their token and take home a new book. All books ready to swap must be in by Friday 28th February

Shelfies Children to take photos of their bookshelves at home and bring them in for a display (in Media Centre). Children could write a line or two underneath to explain how they organise their shelves. To be displayed on a board in the Media Centre. All photos must be in by Friday 28th February for display

Read a book in an unusual place Children photograph themselves (or ask their parents to photograph them) in an unusual place reading a book (in the bath, upside down etc). Bring photos in for a display. Photos in by Friday 14th February for display

Parade On Friday 7th March, children dress up in a character/something related to a book about journeys. Parade around (inside) school with parents standing at the sides (like International day)
