It is these special days which are memorable for the children and ones they often recall when they are older. My thanks then go to all staff who took considerable time and effort to plan a wealth of creative activities and opportunities to learn.

The children in Year 1 got to sample different fruits after reading ‘Oliver’s vegetables,’ and then used role play to tell their version, ‘Oliver’s Fruits.’ In Year 5, the children had to work as authors and illustrators to make their own books using the book ‘Voices in the park’ as inspiration, whilst in Year 4, children made dioramas to represent different points in the story of ‘The Cat in the Hat’ by Dr Seuss.

These are just a few of the many creative activities teachers planned to inspire the children and were thoroughly enjoyed by all!  We were fortunate to have with us two established authors of children’s books, Steve Barlow and Steve Skidmore, ‘The 2 Steves’.  Between them, they have written over 200 books and are famed for their use of comedy. The children were certainly entertained by their storytelling and more importantly were given many useful tips and practical suggestions for writing in the writing workshops.

Throughout the week, the children experienced paired reading in the library. For our children in Years 5 and 6, this gave them opportunities to develop their leadership skills and experience life as a teacher as they planned and then delivered their reading sessions to children in Years 1 and 2.

The week culminated with our Book Character day. It was wonderful to see the children and all the staff in their costumes. They spoke with such animation in our assembly and it was clear for all to see how much they had enjoyed their learning. The winner of the ‘Guess my favourite book competition,’ will be announced next week once all the entries have been checked.
