Read for my school

On Monday the children in Year 5 and 6 were given their usernames for Read for My School which is a challenge set by Pearson publishers. The idea is that children will read as many books as they can and the computer will keep a record of them. There are absolutely loads of books online for the children to read or download, and there is also a very comprehensive list of recommended reads.

I know that the children are all incredibly excited to read as many books as they can between now and March 21st. In school the teachers will keep a check to see how it’s going. If you would like any more information then click here

Book Fair Competition

As last year, we have got five lovely £5 book vouchers to give away that children can spend at the book fair.  This year we would like the children to do something connected with the Hobbit.

Reception and KS1 children can design, draw and neatly label a character that they would like to read about in a magical story.  If they would like to take it further the children could write a short story that involves their magical character.

Children in Key Stage two can design, draw and write an extended character description of a character that would like to see in The Hobbit.  In their description the children need to consider appearance, powers and what their role in the story would be.  If they wanted to take it further they could also write a section of The Hobbit only with their character written into it.

Give it your best shot.  We will decide exactly how to award the prizes when the entries come in.
