What a fantastic start we had to Book Week on Monday with Pete the Poet. He taught us lots of rhymes and stories. He even had enough puppets to go around everyone so we could all act out the stories and raps.
On Tuesday we went to different classes and listened to the teacher’s favourite stories.
We came back to school on Wednesday evening dressed in our pyjamas and had bedtime stories. Lots of teachers read us their favourite stories.
Can you guess what we dressed up as on World Book Day? We were all sorts of book characters and we had lots of fun. There was a competition too with activity book prizes. Year 2 did a book review, Year 1 did a character sketch and Reception made posters showing their favourite book. It was a brilliant day.
We ended Book Week by inviting adults in to read to their children. It was a lovely afternoon with so many being able to go outside and enjoy the fresh air.
It has been a super week and we hope this will raise the importance of sharing at least ten minutes daily with your child in a quiet cosy place, either listening to them read, reading alongside them and sharing a book which is really good when they are tired, children love joining in with the words they know. If you can manage to read a daily bedtime story there are so many benefits to this. If you want any more ideas about helping your child with their reading please speak to the class teacher or email the school office and emails will be forwarded.
