Book Week

It was the first day of Book Week and teachers had decorated their doors so that students would enter their classrooms through a book. The whole school attended a student-led assembly, put together by Mr Kirklands Year 4B class along with students from Year 6, which celebrated the joy of books and was based around a performance of Rumpelstiltskin.In Primary school and Early Years classes, students learned through the lens of a book and its themes. A dedicated book was the focus for the week and many of the classes read along with the words, or took turns to read, as teachers brought the story to life through sound and actions.There were many activities throughout the school during Book Week. The Junior Librarians delivered a performance called Snozzcumbers and Frobscottle from Roald Dahls BHG to students in the playground. There was also a monster colouring competition, a bookmark design competition, and a spooky spell poem writing competition.Senior students and their teachers, Ms Spalding and Mr Ryan, put great effort into preparing performances of Shakespeare plays, which occurred unexpectedly during Primary school lessons aptly titled Surprise Shakespeare. The senior students also read to Early Years children in the library.The week ended with a lot of excitement as we welcomed author and illustrator, Curtis Jobling, to the school. Curtis spoke to all of the students, drawing for them and reading them his stories. Curtis began with his most famous drawing, Bob the Builder, the show that he was the designer for. He talked about his work on Wallace and Gromit, and his creations Frankensteins Cat and Raa Raa the Noisy Lion. For the Senior students, he read excerpts from his newest series Wereworld, and Max Helsing books. After his talks, Curtis signed books for children and included an illustration in each one.The week was nicely wrapped up with Costume Day and the final prize-giving assembly.
