This week has been an extremely productive week, not only academically but holistically; with the children developing their resilience to achieve their goals.

On Thursday 7th March it is world book day, we will be celebrating all things magical! The children have been sent home with a blank book cover form them to write about the book character they have chosen to dress up as. This book cover must contain information about their character, as short synopsis of the book, their opinion on the text and who they think would enjoy reading their book choice. They can make their book cover as colourful and as creative as they wish. All book covers should be in school by Tuesday as they will be displayed in the hall on world book day.

We have an exciting day organised for world book day as we have a ‘guest’ coming to work with us on poetry, song writing and creative narratives. Hopefully we will be able to share our performance poetry with the whole school in assembly and post it on our blog next Friday, so watch this space!

  Please keep up the three book reading challenge as reading is extremely important to our progress in all aspects of literacy. As a class we are reading ’Skellig’ by David Almond and working on ‘scary’ stories to read aloud around the camp fire at waterparks. So please encourage your child to rehearse telling their story out loud once they have written it-the more expressive you are the better atmosphere you will create.

Congratulations to those children who performed with the Blackpool Symphony Orchestra and all those who have received music medals. We are so impressed!

The winner of the AR challenge last term was Leon, who will have a lunchtime treat with the winner of this term in May. So make sure you are reading, quizzing and recording your points on the class chart then you too could be a winner! 

I hope you are all organised for our trip to waterparks in Coniston, we will have a fabulous time regardless of the weather!
