World Book Day - Thursday 3rd March
What a fantastic day we have had! There has been a fantastic buzz of excitement around school today whilst celebrating World Book Day. It has been brilliant to see the books children have brought in from home, and how these have driven their learning for today.
In KS1, we have been creating puppets of our characters and putting on puppet shows. In KS2, the children have been creating bookmarks, blurbs and debating their likes and dislikes when it comes to reading. Each class have completed many different activities and had the chance to read a range of books. Mrs Miller visited each class to read a brand new story which was very exciting!
A huge thank you to Morrisons Kingswinford, who have donated 12 brand new books to add to our library. KS2 were thrilled to see these and are excited at the prospect of being able to borrow them in the future.
However, by far the most important thing to take away from today is that reading is AMAZING and we can never do enough of it! If you complete your Reading Bingo in your planner, please see Mr Wade for a prize.
Our pupils had the following to say about the day...

Mason - "I liked designing the David Walliams' book front cover and it's made me want to read more David Walliams' books. I obviously also enjoyed coming in to school in pyjamas."
Luke R - “We have World Book Day to make sure everyone has a book and they can read. I enjoyed guessing the book characters’ names in the quiz. My favourite activity today was making my own bookmark to keep my place in my book.”
Kyla R - “I like reading because it’s calming and it helps me to imagine that I’m in a different place, a different person. Reading at bedtime helps me to go to sleep.”
Clay - "I enjoyed the DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) time because it was calming and I am reading an exciting book! I also enjoyed dressing up in pyjamas and wearing football slippers."
Poppy - "I liked Mrs Miller reading to all of Year 5-6 in the hall. I enjoyed having time to read my own book and dressing up."

Sienna - "I liked writing my own blurb to encourage others to read my book and thought making a poster to advertise my book was really fun."
James, 5/6D - "I enjoyed being able to drop everything and read because I don't normally read a lot at home. I liked writing my own blurb."
Alexandra, 5/6D - "I loved bringing my new book in to school. Reading helps me to escape my worries and takes me into different, imaginary worlds. I like thinking about different characters and relating to them."
What a brilliant day! Let's continue to enjoy and love reading.
Thanks, Mr Wade
