World Book Day 2015!

Poetry Pizazz!

 

Children from across the federation took part in World Book Day. We had lots of reading and writing activities happening in school. Take a look at the exciting events that took place and if you’re passing school pop in and have a look at our Poetry Display showcasing many of the poetry entries for the writing competition.

 

Poetry Writing Competition

Over February Half Term we held a poetry writing competition, asking children to write a poem based around our British Values. We were astounded by the quality of the entries into the competition from children in each year group. The winning poems from each class were awarded with a book token to the value of £5 and the runner up in each class were each presented with a Poetry Book; we hope you enjoy reading them. There were also some highly commended certificates for children in Class 3 who posed the judges with a real challenge to choose just one winner and runner up. All poems entered into the competition can be found below and many are displayed in school. Well done everyone for a fantastic effort.

The winners were as follows:

Class 1: Munro and Holly S

Class 2: Charley H and Emily

Class 3: Jonah and Finn (Connie, Shayne, William)

Poetry Slam!

This year’s World Book Day saw our first ever Poetry Slam competition. Each class took poems to learn and had time in class and outside school to learn their poems ready for a class performance. Each class voted for their favourite recitals and the finalists were as follows:

Class 1: Felicity (runner up), Bailie, Charley, Sonny (winner), Rufus, Sean

Class 2: Madi and Angel (winners), Spencer and Ashton (runners up), Mollie and Poppy,

Class 3: Jack (runners up), Jessica, Elise (winner), Harris (winner), Millie B

The judges were given a difficult task in just choosing one winning performance and a runner up for each class. Have a look at some of the videos of children performing below…

 

I think you’ll agree we’ve got some real talent in our school. Well done everyone for your entertaining performances and bravery in getting up to share your work with others. I can’t wait for next year!!

Book Donations

To help keep our library well stocked with relevant books we asked for book donations. Many children brought books in to share with others. Here are just a few of the children with the books they brought in. A huge thank you to our parents and children for bringing in unwanted books which were of a very high quality and current. We all look forward to reading them over the next year.

Thank you to our children who donated books for the School Library:

Here are some of Class Three performing their poems for the Poetry Slam:
