Rebecca Westcott author visit

We were really lucky to have the author Rebecca Westcott visiting the school today. Years 5 and 6 had an assembly where they had an inspiring talk which was then followed by workshops for different groups of children throughout Key Stage 2.  The children came back buzzing with inspiration with what they had achieved during their time with the author.

The Book Fair comes to visit

The Travelling Book Fair came to the school this week and has been really successful with all the classes getting a chance to visit and to choose books to buy. There was a huge variety of information and story books and everyone really enjoyed the opportunity to look at them all.  Many children were busy reading the blurbs on the back of the books to help them decide which one they wanted to read. Year 2 used their class bookshop role play experiences  in order to find the price of each book to then decide if they had enough money to buy one.
The fair was also really busy after school with parents and carers enjoying the experience of being able to browse the books with their children.
