The QPA reading game commenced today, with many classes taking their first steps onto the board. Prizes will be awarded when classes reach certain points on the board as a result of the reading that they complete during the week. Who will be first to a prize space?
A crime was committed in the Year 5 corridor this morning! Fear not, the year group are currently investigating who the culprit is who stole the cake…
The children had a great time during World Book Day today. The performance of ‘Oliver’ was well received and everyone entered into the literary spirit!
We are all very excited about World Book Day tomorrow. We will have a theatre company coming into school who will put on a show for all pupils and also run workshops for Year 6 about the technicalities of production. Children will also participate in literary themed learning throughout the day, which will include working with pupils in other year groups.
Pupils (and teachers!) are welcome to come to school in book themed fancy dress or in pyjamas.
Tomorrow a book bus will be visiting the school, offering the pupils the opportunity to purchase a book from a wide range of titles across different genres of literature. If you would like your child to buy a book, then please send them in with some money in a named envelope. Books start from £3.
Year 5 have been writing adventure stories based on their topics of Ancient Egypt. Here is an impressive paragraph from a pupil in 5AP:
Heaving with every ounce of strength in my bones, I rolled the sturdy rock aside. Dazzling light dawned through the ancient Egyptian monument. A grin widened across my face as I set foot within this extraordinary construction, erected thousands of years ago. Caution in every step, my heart raced with fear that slowly overwhelmed my soul. Groaning came from within the historic establishment. As I advanced attentively, I stared in wonder at the horror of the statues before me.
