Book Week 2019
Books! Books! Books! That was certainly the theme last week in school. Another fantastic Book Week was enjoyed by students, staff and parents alike. There was such a lovely buzz around the school.
Throughout the week, so many super reading-related events were run by the teachers at morning breaks and lunchtimes, such as: book-marking making, quizzes galore, script writing, book board game making and drawing masterclasses. There were so many wonderful competitions too, so lots of house points were earned by the children.
We had lots of events in and around the library too. Paragon Asia and Book Link both came in and were selling discounted books. We also had a used book sale. Children in KS2 could watch Dr. Seuss: the Lorax, and other super competitions could be entered.
Our visiting author- Karin Littlewood- was in all week holding presentations and running workshops with all EYFS and Primary children. Not only was she a hit with everyone, she also said what an amazing week she had had. Karin commented on the lovely atmosphere in school, and said we had great children, who were talented, polite and asked her some wonderful questions.
She was the best author that I have worked with from Author’s Abroad - very engaging, had good behaviour management and the children thoroughly enjoyed their workshop with her. They can’t wait to finish creating their story necklaces! - Mrs Kat
Our Book Week rounded off with our annual book character parades. Everyone looked super in their costumes. Thank you to all the parents, who had helped to make the costumes. You efforts are truly appreciated. Any winners of competitions, as well as the best costume from each class, were announced during the assemblies. A big thanks to Miss Cherry for choreographing an amazing book-themed dance, and also to Mrs Alice and Mrs Marie, who taught the STA Sing Girls choir an outstanding book-themed song ‘Words are Ours.’
