The Masked Reader

Take a look at our World Book Day website! Children have looked at the website during Crew this morning. We currently have a lot of excitement in school as children ask one another, ‘Who’s that behind the book?’ Each day leading up to World Book Day, 4 masked readers will be added to the site with clues to their identity. Can you guess who is behind each book?

Are you feeling inspired? Why not send a picture of yourself, with your face hidden behind a book, to your teacher. You could try other ways to disguise your identity too! You can also write your own clues to try and help your peers work out who is hiding!

Chocolate Rocks and Great Geologists

This week in Year 3 and 4 we have learning all about…….rocks!

You wouldn’t think there was a lot to say about a rock, but ask any of our LKS2 children  and they will tell you that rocks have hidden depths!

We have learnt that they can be Igneous, Metamorphic or Sedimentary and what the difference is between them.

We have put our learning into practice today, using chocolate! It was a bit messy and some of us found it very difficult to fight the temptation of eating the chocolate, but we were able to show how sedimentary and metamorphic rocks are formed.

Check out the website to try the activity at home – but don’t forget to send in the photos!

Accelerated Reader League

This is becoming my favourite part of the Pride of Plover Assembly, announcing which class is the winner of the Accelerated Reader League!

Congratulations to 6C who have passed the most quizzes, for two weeks running.  However, 6B was very close – it was tight by only 1.6%!

A shoutout goes to 3L, who have been in the top 3 places for the last three weeks.

1st place: 6C

2nd place: 6B

3rd place: 3L

We have seen an increase in the number of quizzes passed for most classes, which means lots of reading and quizzing is happening- both at home and in school!  Keep up the awesome reading KS2.

Dunkin Donuts!

Children across school have been reading and quizzing to be entered to win a box of 6 Dunkin Donuts. Your teachers are incredibly proud of the effort you have put into reading over the past few weeks!

Due to success of this competition, we have decided to run the competition again! There will be a winner from each class and every time you read (and quiz for those children in KS2) in school or at home, you will be entered into the draw!

You have from Friday 26th February until Thursday 26th March to enter. Winners will be announced in Pride of Plover assembly on Friday 27th March, with the winners bringing their boxes of donuts home from school with them!

Good luck everyone!

World Book Day

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!

Well done and keep going 3T

Hi 3T, I just wanted to say a huge well done to those of you who have taken on board the comments about reading and quizzing more often.

I have just been doing the raffle tickets for the prize draw after half term and the number of tickets has increased massively.

I am also super proud of how we have gone from 57,000 words to over 100,00 in the space of just over a fortnight. That is an incredible effort. Well done! We just need to keep reading and quizzing to catch up with everyone else’s efforts.

I really feel so proud writing this post. Well done. Have a lovely rest of your break and I will see you all either online or in school on Monday morning.

Miss Topliss
