Wow! What a truly fabulous day we have had.
The potato book characters were simply stunning and it was clear how much effort children had put into choosing their book and creating their character. There was such a wide range of characters; Little Red Riding Hood, Gruffalo, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Elmer, to name just a few.
The children enjoyed seeing both their friends and the teachers creations but a highlight was meeting with our buddy classes to share books and potato characters. The younger children loved having a story read to them by an older buddy.
Over the week the children in each class have been performing favourite poems to their peers. Each class voted for their favourite performance and the selected children performed in today’s assembly. We had a wonderful innovation of The Owl and the Pussy Cat, nursery rhymes, a poem about a cat and a poem about a Komodo Dragon which was written by Max in Y1( the ending had us all laughing!) Well done to everyone who learnt and performed a poem this week.
We also did DEAR ( Drop Everything And Read). Each time the bell rang everyone in school had to stop what they were doing and read a book .
