World Book Day - Picture Book Theme
How wonderful it was to see all the children get into the spirit of World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March. We had a fabulous day! The day started with the playground parade for most of the school, whilst Years 5 and 6 were fortunate enough to be invited to meet the author, Chris Bradford (who put on quite a performance).
Throughout the day, children were listening out for the school bell which signified 'Drop Everything and Read'. The teachers stopped what they were doing and selected one of the decorated spoons. The ‘nominated’ creator of the spoon then shared their book with the class. Children also took part in the 'Guess the book' treasure hunt. All staff had decorated their spoons on the theme of Picture Books and the children had to find their spoons (hidden throughout the school) and guess which well-known book they represented. The children also took part in 'Book Swap' during the day, swapping their pre-loved books with another swapped book to read.
We ended the day with our whole school worship where Mrs Rodenas chose the last spoon of the day and read that child's book to the whole school. Before going home Years 5 and 6 also took part in their playground parade.
Year 4 Visit to Reading Museum
On Friday 10th March 2023, Cedar class spent the day in Reading. The children began their day by attending an educational workshop on the Bayeux Tapestry at the Reading Museum (to support their learning of this term’s topic 1066), before exploring all the many amazing artefacts and artwork the museum had to offer. During their morning session the children were able to dress like royalty, become an Anglo Saxon or Norman and analyse and discuss the events that took place in the lead up to the battle of Hastings.
A great day was had by all, and we would like to thank the parent helpers on the day for their support.
