Book Week

Mon, 29/01/2018 - 13:53 -- Lydia Makram

Book week 2018 was a hugely successful week which focused on poetry and performance. All children in Prep and Pre-prep learnt a poem by heart, with the older children performing their chosen poem to their year group and, using specific success criteria, assessing each other. Children then voted and the best of each year group recited their poems in our Book Week assemblies. Alongside the recitals, many competitions took place, including ‘guess how many books are in the library’, a design a bookmark competition and an extreme reading photo challenge. The children took part in these competitions with vigour and some amazing artwork, plus hilarious photos were sent in. Each child also chose their favourite story and created a story hat to promote it. School council judged the winners. The competition was tough and the hats looked phenomenal when all worn to assembly. Thank you to all the children who took part and parents who supported them. I think we have definitely have some future poets in our midst!
