School Target 2020/21 = 96%
World Book Day 2021
World Book Day 2021 fell during our period of remote learning but we wanted all children to celebrate the day at home with lots of fun book based activities.
Everyone was sent this sheet full of fun ideas and a book hunt sheet, but would anyone be able to find all 15 books?
The Festival of Literature (2nd - 12th February 2021)
The Festival of Literature brings acclaimed authors, illustrators, and poets together to inspire both children and adults to read for pleasure. It is a fantastic opportunity to get our children excited about reading. The events are available to watch live or on catch up. The children will have access to live streams, live questions and answers from the authors as well as fantastic teaching resources linked to each author event, tailored to suit each year group. Teachers will be in touch soon with more information.
During Lockdown 2021 as most children are at home learning remotely we have decided to make Book Club remote too, with weekly discussions online.
We are currently reading:
Year 6 - High Rise Mystery by Sharna Jackson
Year 5 - The Light Jar by Lisa Thompson
Year 4 - The Bookshop Girl by Sylvia Bishop
Year 3 -The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy
