Book Week

Book Week 2016

This year book week was held during the week begining 3 October.  We called it 'If you go down to Forest School today ...' and the children used both fiction and non fiction books to find out about the animals after which there class is named.

Dressing Up Day

To launch this very special week the children were invited to come dressed as their favourite book character.  The staff and children looked fabulous so thank you to everyone for the effort on a Monday morning!


Bring your Dad, Grandad, Uncle ... to school morning

Dads, Grandads, Uncles were invited to come and work with the children in the classrooms.  The children loved bringing their dads, uncles and grandads to school and had a great time working with them to make giant collage ladybirds, designing and creating super powered squirrels,rabbits and foxes, making modroc animals and producing mobiles of natural materials.

It was lovely atmosphere and we are very grateful to all those dads, grandads and uncles who were able to escape their day job for the morning.

Artist Jenny Leonard

During Book week the Year 1 and Year 2 children have worked with an artist, Jenny Leonard, creating a woodland scene mural for the wall by the pond.



T-shirt Competition


Every child was asked to produce a design with a slogan to promote reading.  There were two winners from each class and the winning designs were transferred onto real T-shirts and presented in assembly.




Read with your child

To end the week, parents and carers were invited to come and share books with the children at 2.30 p.m.
