As we come to the end of another successful Book Week, I would like to share with you some of the highlights.
Superheroes were out in force this week in Primary! In fact all of our superheroes surprised the Secondary School this morning when they took part in an enormous flash mob. The secondary students were seated in their assembly when Mr Webb was interrupted by 3 of our Year 6 pupils. This was the cue for all of the children, from F1 to Year 6, to charge into the auditorium and take their places. The poem ‘If I was a Superhero’ was recited, accompanied by our very own actions. The secondary students were certainly surprised as they were surrounded by a fantastic array of superheroes of all heights and ages. Congratulations Primary children and staff – you really did a tremendous job!
On Monday and Tuesday, we enjoyed a visit from Ciaran Murtagh, a very successful author from the UK. Not only does he write books, he also writes TV shows and has recently been involved with scripting The Slammer, The Legend of Dick and Dom, Scoop, Hotel Trubble, Casper's Scare School, The 4 O'Clock Club, Diddy Movies, Mr
Bloom's Nursery and Planet Ajay. Children were truly inspired and this week they started writing their own stories with one of our superheroes as their main character. We will be publishing some of these stories in our own library and placing them in classrooms for everyone to enjoy.
All week we have been visited by our very own BIS Superheroes: Poppy Perseverance, Captain Care, Reflection Rebecca, Respectagain, The Questionator and Indiana Integrity. These superheroes were keen to talk to children about their special powers and how they love reading so, ‘Drop and Read’ everyone!
I would like to thank Ms. Hughes and the Book Week events organizing team. I’m sure you’ll agree, this has been one of the most enjoyable weeks of the year!
