Reading Racetrack Assembly
1B and 1Y shared the infant first place trophy while 5B and 5FK shared the junior one. 1L and 6F were both in second place for their respective sites! We had 4 classes with 100%, which means that all of the children had read at home to an adult at least 4 times a week for at least 6 out of the 8 previous weeks. Super stuff!
World Book Day:
World Book Day was celebrated across the school in lots of different ways. We had assemblies where teachers shared some of their favourite books; classes met together to share books and there was even a book character competition!
Here are the trophy winners from our most recent reading racetrack.... Congratulations 1Y, 5B and 6F (winners) and 1B and 5FK (runners up).
Our Y3 and 4 pupils had a visit from new author - Marie Basting. They enjoyed hearing about the characters in her book and her experiences as an author.
Our Y5 and 6 pupils really enjoyed learning about being an author from Jessica Townsend who visited our school today. We also enjoyed welcoming the Y5 and 6 pupils from St Monica's who joined us for the event.
We have had a massive number of views and comments on Pobble!
World Book Day saw us all dressing up with loads of book related activities going on. Many classes 'linked up' to enable our infant pupils to work with our junior pupils.
