World Book Day

On World Book Day we dressed up as a character from our favourite Julia Donaldson book. We did lots of fun activities such as making our own books, bookmarks and masks.

In assembly we showed our costumes to the rest of the school in a parade and shared our favourite Julia Donaldson books.

World Book Day

Year 5 had a fantastic World Book Day! Our class author is David Williams- we were extremely excited to come to school dressed as our favourite characters from his books! In the morning we completed a ‘Gangsta Granny’ quiz which tested our reading comprehension skills, and in the afternoon we designed our own ‘Midnight club’ badges which we then handed out to our friends.

World Book Day

Nursery children thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day. They all came to school dressed up as a character from a book by our class author, Eric Carle. Our favourite stories by Eric Carle are “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Bad-Tempered Ladybird”. They have been printing their own pictures of ladybirds.

Times Tables Challenge

We had a great afternoon yesterday at Royton Hall School with their Year four class and a class from Blackshaw Lane.  When we arrived we all sang the six and seven times tables song.  Then we split into four groups and we worked together to crack a code.  We then all got back together for the showdown.  Alfie and Jack S were representing our class and they did a brilliant job answering times tables questions against four other children.

Science Week

For Science week we investigated how germs spread.  We set up a ‘sneeze zone’ and we all had a piece of card and we drew a picture of ourselves on it and then placed it in the sneeze zone.  We used a water spray to see how far the water travelled and to see how many of the pictures got wet.  We then repeated this again but this time we put a hand in front of the water spray and finally we repeated it again but this time we put a tissue in front of the water spray.  We found out that sneezes can spread far and wide and to minimise the spreading of germs a tissue should always be used.

World Book Day

Year 4’s class author is Michael Morpurgo. Michael Morpurgo has written more than 100 books, a mixture of novels, picture books, chapter books and collections of short stories. We read some of the Mudpuddle farm series in Year two. This year we have enjoyed reading books like Cool and Toro Toro. At the moments we are reading The Butterfly Lion and we can’t wait to find out what happens.

World Book Day

Don’t we all look fantastic for World Book Day? Year 1 class author is Oliver Jeffers. His books include “Lost and Found” and “Stuck”. We are writing our own Stuck stories and hope that we can send them to our author for him to read.

World Book Day

Today is world book day! It is one of the best days ever in school. World book day is where you dress up as a character from a book author. In year 3 we have dressed up as characters from Roald Dahl books. We have been reading Charlie and the chocolate factory, Charlie wins a golden ticket to go and visit Mr. Willy Wonka’s factory.

In assembly each year group did a little parade. They stood up and walked around the hall with a connected song to the author or the book they were reading.
