World Book Day will be celebrated in school and at home on Friday 5th March. We would love all children to get involved in the fun. This year, the theme of World Book Day will be ‘Books That Make You LOL’. We would like to invite all children to dress up as a character from a book that makes them laugh. There will be prizes up for grabs for the most creative efforts put into a costume.
There will be a ‘decorate a potato challenge’ which we invite everyone to have a go at. You can decorate a potato as a character from any book or even decorate several potatoes if you are making a scene from a book. We also will have a competition just for fun based on the TV show, ‘The Masked Singer’. Staff have hidden their identities behind books and you will be using the clues to discover who is behind the mask!
Vouchers will be emailed to all parents and carers for the World Book Day £1 books. These will take the place of the normal paper vouchers. Some shops are requesting paper copies of the vouchers so please check before spending the voucher. If you find you need a paper copy but do not have access to a printer, please let your child’s teacher know and they will print you a copy.
We can’t wait to see your costumes and celebrate with you!
It has been a ‘strange’ half term with some of our children working online and some in school. But you have adapted and worked so well. You have made us all super proud.
Over the last week we have been scientists exploring materials, this has included sorting materials, looking at the properties of materials – including burning them! You have seen this work on the class blogs.
Many of you have enjoyed baking this week – I hope you really looked at how materials change when mixed and cooked!
In maths you were creative with the resources you used to help you.
Now I hope you all have a really well earned rest over the half term. Let’s hope that next half term at some stage it is safe enough for us all to be back in the classroom together.
I am so proud of all of the children who contributed to the Santander ‘thank key workers’ valentines display. This is the display so far and I am sure you will all agree, it looks beautiful! Keep an eye out for the video of all the contributions, which will be coming very soon! Well done everyone!
