World Book Day 2019
The whole school dressed up as their favourite book characters. What an amazing sight it was!
We began the day with a whole school assembly, giving us a chance to see everyone’s great costumes and hear a story from Ms Meadows.
During the day each class met up with a different class for ‘reading buddies’ and shared stories with them.
Throughout the day we all were involved in writing three stories. They began in each of the Reception classes where they looked at a bag full of props and wrote the beginning of the story. Then they were each passed on to a Year 1 class who wrote the next part and then passed on to a Year 2 class and so on. Have a look at our stories.
At the end of the day all the teachers mixed up and went to a different class. They brought us a brand new book, shared it with us and then left it for our book corners.
Mental Health Awareness Assembly
We brought in tins, packets and jars of food for the East Bristol food bank. Peter Shears, a volunteer at the food bank, came to speak to us and tell us how the food bank helps feed families.
Thank you to everyone for their kind donations.
New Books and Bookshelves!
We are very proud to be only one of 70 schools across the country to be awarded a set of 70 new books and a specially designed bookcase! These were given to us by the Wicked Young Writer Awards who have partnered with the National Literacy Trust, Beanstalk, BookTrust, First Story and the Roald Dahl Literary Estate to mark the 70th birthday of their patron, Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall. We were selected because of the great work we have done to promote reading for pleasure in the school. We had a special assembly to mark the occasion and the beautiful books will be available to borrow from the school library.
