Wow! What an amazing week we have had celebrating reading, sharing books and being inspired by authors and their stories.
We started the week with Amy Wilson coming to teach us all about being an author – she inspired us to create our own worlds and characters. She reminded us how important it is to keep going at writing a story, rewriting and editing it as we go.
Thanks to CCJ, we have been able to visit their library (while Downend library has been closed!) – We have thoroughly enjoyed learning about how to find books that we like in a library.
We loved our film night and I am so pleased that we can now use the funds raised to get more reading books for the children to read at school – thank you to everyone who supported this event!
We loved World Book day on Thursday and thank you all for making such an effort with costumes – the kids had a fabulous day being inspired by a range of authors from around the world.
We have so enjoyed having many parents into school to share their favourite books – it has been great to hear different people read stories to us in our classes so thank you to those who could support us by doing this.
We finished our week off with our reading café on Friday morning and we loved reading in groups with adults in our classes. We have learnt so much and, more importantly, we have had time to immerse ourselves in great stories – taking us to different worlds and inspiring us in so many ways.
Mrs Martin has had the most difficult job of the week trying to decide who could win our book scene competition – we think that all of the children are winners as they have all put so much effort into their scenes and we can see straight away which story each is representing! Each time I have walked into the hall this week I have seen children and adults admiring them all. Thank you all for the support we have had this week to support our book week and to enable us to inspire a love of book in all of our children. Bring on next year!
