Book Week 2016

We enjoyed a successful book week in Spring Term 2016: KS2 battled it out to win the title of ‘KS2 Book Quiz Winners’; The Readathon was launched seeing the children participate in extra reading activities that raised a staggering £233.61. These superstars were all awarded certificates for their outstanding contributions and efforts. The money raised will be used this May to order more audio books for the school library, also known as ‘The Hub’, which will be opening to parents after school, on a weekly basis, starting from Tuesday 7th June, and every Tuesday from then on.

We also took part in a Book Treasure Hunt; and a record number of children participated in the ‘DRESS UP AS YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK CHARACTER DAY’; EYFS also got the opportunity to enjoy the celebrations when the poet and storyteller Pauline Stewart visited to entertain them with her rhymes and stories and a World Famous Author: Jeremy Strong visited - telling witty tales from his childhood and why his new book is ‘laugh-your-socks-off’ funny. Totally ecstatic by Jeremy’s visit, the children were also able to get a signed copy of one of his stories.

The Scholastics Book Fair also arrived on Thursday 3rd March and was open for sales until Wednesday 9th March. The success of this Scholastic Book fair was our personal best, with your help we raised over £670 in free books for the school. These were ordered immediately and distributed straight to your child’s class making Book Week 2016 the best Bonanza ever.
