This week we are taking World Book Day a little further and, as well as the usual WBD activities, which include our Book at Bedtime event, the children will be spending the whole week looking in detail at the book Lost and Found.
Lost and Found is a picture book by Oliver Jeffers and tells a wonderful story of a boy and a penguin. During the week the children will doing lots of super activities based around that book and maybe one or two of his other picture books too.
I am really looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things that the children produce. I hope that you might be able to share in the great work too by popping into the school hall on Friday after school. In the hall will be a display of the wonderful ‘Book on a Plate’ entries as well as a selection of the fantastic work that the children will produce this week.
As you know, we are always looking for ways to enrich and improve the children’s reading and this week is just one way that we are doing it. Don’t forget that the children in KS2 still have a month of Read for my School left which is a fantastic resource with a massive range of books. I have also just ordered another £250 worth of books for the library. Additionally, we have recently subscribed to a online reading experience for the children in KS2 which should be accessible soon. I will put more details in a newsletter when the resource is ready to roll out.

You can also see a teacher or even arrange to come in and watch a guided or one to one reading session.
There is also a wealth of information on the OUP website with great advice and also 250 free ebooks that are now tablet friendly.
