Year1 had a fantastic opportunity to take part in a webinar with author Bethan Woollvin. They listened to her read one of her famous books. The class then took part in a draw along with Bethan where they learnt how to draw the troll from her book. It was a fantastic morning!
On Thursday 3rd March we had a wonderful World Book Day celebration. Our children dressed up as their favourite book character and brought the book into school with them.
We thoroughly enjoyed showing off our costumes in a whole-school assembly and learning that World Book Day is 25 years old this year! We were all delighted to take home a book token so that we can each buy a brand new book.
During the day, each class took part in lots of different activities: making bookmarks, shared reading with older pupils and acting out stories.
The children in Reception and Year One were delighted to welcome Catherine from Tiny Tales and Tunes to our school in March. To link with our topics of 'Springtime' and 'Growing', she read 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' to us. We explored the story by looking at lights, tasting fruit, pretending to be caterpillars (and then beautiful butterflies!) and moving and dancing in lots of different ways.
Thank you Catherine for bringing the story to life for us. We loved it!
