Celebrating World Book Day and More!
Yesterday saw special Reading Buddy sessions take place across school to celebrate World Book Day. The children had the opportunity to share their favourite books and some of their reading and talked about the books they really enjoy and why. It was a wonderful way for classes to work together and celebrate the pleasure of reading and sharing a good book together!
We welcomed parents of Pearl class children into our Guided Reading sessions this week as they saw 'reading in action' as children took part in their guided session and carousel of activities.
Our Year 4 children have been busy strengthening their vocal chords for their Singing Together
performance later this term. On Monday they had a special rehearsal with Victoria Palethorpe and from the enthusiasm and energy that filled the hall in this session I am sure they will sing
the roof off in their 'real' performance!
As you will know, we share our special School Prayer each day with children in school when we
join together for Collective Worship. Our prayer is unique to our school and was written by our
pupils with the help of School Council and Reverend Helen. It summarises the care and value we place on our school community and how we all strive to make our school a warm, welcoming and secure place to be. Parents and carers may wish to share this special prayer with their children at home and I am copying it below for those who wish to do so:
Thank you for our school, for the pupils, staff and families that we come from.
Thank you for the chance to learn, play, pray and grow together.
Our school is made of hearts, not bricks and is good because of the people inside it.
All of our friends are special to us.
Help us to get along and respect each other.
Let us bring kindness, peace and joy to our school.
