We had a tremendous rise in book reviews completed this month – thank you parents and teachers!
We have two very popular authors for this month, so hopefully the children will enjoy reading their chosen books and book reviews will continue to flood in!
We will be celebrating World Book Day on 1st March 2018 with our theme ‘The Big Bedtime Story’. Ideas for dressing up were discussed with the Junior Governors and then class votes were taken. The outcome was that instead of dressing up as a favourite book character, children can come to school in their pyjamas and bring their favourite bedtime story with them (far easier to plan than a costume!). We agreed that, as they dressed up as a character for Roald Dahl Day, it would be a nice change. There are many exciting activities planned for the actual day, more details will follow.
The chosen authors for February are:
Lower School – Jeremy Strong https://www.jeremystrong.co.uk/
Upper School – David Walliams https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/
Thank you once again for encouraging your children to develop a love of reading!
