The school was full of budding authors and illustrators as we celebrated our annual Book Week. Several special events took place to promote the enjoyment of reading and writing throughout the school.
Pupils in Mrs Sheppard’s and Mrs Carney's classes were joined by Rebecca Smith from The Corn Exchange in Newbury who did a story-telling session with them
Each of our pupils learned a poem to perform to their class with the finalists performing to the whole school and a panel of judges.
We were so impressed with the quality of the performances; hopefully the experience will engender a love of poetry in all of our pupils.
It was fantastic to see such great ideas in action as the pupils and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters. From Gandalf to unicorns, and Harry Potter to the magic faraway tree, the costumes were absolutely fantastic. Well done to everyone...now you can get your thinking caps on for two years’ time!
Good luck to all our pupils who entered the Radio 2 competition...we look forward to hearing how you got on!
