Inspire, Respect, Belong

World Book day

A wonderful week promoting a love of reading has been had by all in school this week.  


A big thank you everyone for your generosity shown towards our book fair and for your continued support of reading at home.  


All children had the opportunity to visit our book fair and many lovely books were purchased along the way. We have made a massive £600.00 this year and this money will be well spent buying more books for school so we can continue promoting our whole school love of reading vision. 


EYFS & Year 1/2 

The children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 have all thoroughly enjoyed their ‘Book Tasting’ experience. They spent quality time enjoying looking at a range of books, sharing their favourite books and stories with their peers and enjoying listening to a range of stories and poems in their classes.  

The children were so excited and enthusiastic about sharing their books and having the opportunity to look at a new selection of texts.  


Year 3/4 

Stunning Starfish and Super Seahorses spent the afternoon ‘tasting’ books, with a taster menu of different reading materials.  They sampled Fiction, Where in the World?, Magazines, Famous People, poetry and Artists.  The children really enjoyed looking at the range of books (all from our school library) and magazines, and then also enjoyed reading their own favourite books from home.   

Their enthusiasm was fabulous to witness! 


Year 5/6 

Perfect Penguins, Tremendous Turtles and Successful Seals also had a lovely afternoon sampling a taste of different books. We had ‘our suggestions’ with books the children bought in from home, artists, inspirational people, history, geography, science, newspapers and poetry. Table clothes and tea lights set the scene, with some calm music in our book café. The children really enjoyed ten minutes of silent reading, just enjoying the pleasure of reading, with many wanting to carry on! We finished the afternoon with some music and a few minutes enjoying our class book. A wonderful book day to finish off enjoying our trips to the book fair and the school library.
