Reception children brought along their favourite soft toy along with a parents/carers for our Teddies, Tea and Toast family event. Activities included Sharing Stories (child and adult), Teddy Bear trail (spelling activity) and Making Teddy Bear masks.
Year 6 story star leaders read stories to Year 1 and 2 story stars.
Year 1 and 2 changed into the Pjs and slippers and enjoyed a visit from Kate Swift from Kirkby library who read them and interactive story with puppets during a Bedtime Story session. Year 3 then had a reading session on the gigantic bed the following morning. The children thoroughly embraced the event and fully relaxed on the gigantic bed as you can see from the photos!
Year 4 Book Club meet weekly to share and discuss a book of their choice. The book this term was ‘Tom Gates Top of the Class’. You can read their Book Reviews here....
Year 5 Digismart group is an online reading programme. At the end of the 10 week core programme the children performed professional presentations about an Animal of their choice using Book Creator on the Ipads. The group invited Miss Withey and Miss Walton to watch them who were particularly impressed with their improved confidence. This followed a visit from the Digismart Director who was particularly impressed with their presentation work too.
On World Book Day the whole school followed a ‘Where’s Wally?’ trail around the school. We had a great time looking up high, looking down, looking behind things, looking underneath things. Some of them were really tricky to find and even Mrs Proffitt couldn’t find them and she hid them all!
In the afternoon we had Reading Buddy sessions when the Junior classes shared books with the Infants which we all really enjoyed.
The photos show our Where’s Wally? Prize Day Winners.
This term we decided that our school library was looking a little tired and needed a makeover...cue Miss Withey and her magic wand! We are thrilled to reveal our newly refurbished school library; a cosy, comfy, welcoming space in the centre of our school, where all children can relax, curl up and read a book.
Every class now has allocated time slots when groups can enjoy reading for pleasure, delve into some fact finding or listen to a story and sail away on a myriad of adventures! The library is open every Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime and all children are invited to choose a book to enjoy at home. Have a peek at some of us enjoying some time in our fab new library...it's Mrs Hudson's new favourite place to hide!!
Something new and spectacular has landed at Eastcroft Park... Our very own TARDIS! When you enter the hallowed doors, you will find yourself transported into a very special 'book nook'; a cosy, little space for small groups to snuggle up and read a book and be transported into their own world of adventures! Our boys love it (and so does Jimmy, our site manger!) We're all on the lookout for the Doctor...
This term, the Reading Hut has been transformed into a sensational space station to fit in with our 'Space' themed hall. Every day, children who enter blast off into a galaxy of adventures!
