We had a fabulous time on World Book Day! Everyone across the school dressed up to celebrate their love of reading and books!
Each class recorded a special assembly about their class reading book, which were shared across the partnership! We all learned more about books that children our age are reading. There were some super recommendations and we have been inspired to choose a new class novel as a result.
Mrs Montague has kindly purchased a new book for every class across the partnership to read. Each class voted for a new book today from the 'Peters Books Top 100 Reads'. Some of our choices were inspired by our peers in the other partnership schools!
Every class themed their learning around their class reader for this half term and each door was decorated with the theme of the book to make an interactive school library!
Year R were all at sea with their Pirate themed books. The children created wanted posters for missing pirates, located all the missing gems using the treasure map, tea-stained paper to make their own treasure maps and role-played in the pirate ship.
Year 1 were immersed in their individual class books and became secret inventors, potion creators or dragon growers. Activities included writing instructions to make a lava lamp, reporting on the potion that turned Grandma into a giant chicken and designing dragon eggs.
Year 2 doors were inspired by the books of Rob Biddulph. Children became illustrators for the day and created a class book, complete with book cover, title and blurb.
Year 3 have been reading ‘The day I fell into a fairy tale’ by Ben Miller. They wrote their own alternative endings to their chosen fairy tale and then created art work to illustrate their new stories.
Year 4 and Year 5 chose to decorate their doors based on the individual books they are reading and enjoying in class currently. There were lots of wonderful and creative designs – take a look and see if you can name the book they are inspired by!
Year 6 have been reading ‘Explorer’ by Katherine Rundell. They transformed their doors into portals to the jungle, complete with ambient rainforest sounds!
Thank you to all students and staff across the school for your participation - we had a great day!
