World Book Day!

Wow! World Book Day on Thursday 3rd March was amazing! Year 5 really impressed us with their costumes. They all made such an effort and there was such a range…we had Amelia as Carmelita Spats from ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’, Gracie as the hungry caterpillar from ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’, Matthew as Jason from ‘The Lost Hero’, Lottie as Hetty Feather, Lewis as Yoda from ‘The Story of Darthvader’, Rupert as Fantastic Mr. Fox, Alfie as Mr. Bump, Oliver as James Bond, Luke as Alex Rider, Sophia Rickett as Sophie from ‘The BFG’, Grace as Destiny from ‘Little Darlings’, Jessica as ‘Little Red Riding Hood’…can you recognise the other characters from the lovely photos we took…? Mrs O'Neill, Mrs Brown and Miss Hanefey came as the three little pigs and were chased by the big bad wolf at one point in the day!
We had a Literacy lesson on Thursday all about ‘The Museum of Fun’. The children thought of lots of different types of questions that they could ask on an educational trail through the museum. They worked in pairs to write quiz style questions about Victorian theatre, dance, the circus, movies, puppet shows, the fair and festivals. Some volunteered to quiz the class with their questions!
Later in the day the Governor Mrs Lock kindly gave up her time to come and read to the class. She read the first chapter of ‘Why the Whales Came’ by Michael Morpurgo.
Then we all went to the hall for the costume parade! At the end of the day the class spent time designing a book token which will be entered into a competition. We will keep you posted…!
In Science this week the children investigated the solubility of a variety of materials. They predicted what would happen first and then experimented. We had lots of excitement over baking powder, cement, cornflower and vitamin C tablets!
We are looking forward to meeting with you all next Monday and Tuesday. Please remember the appointments are 10 minutes. If you feel you need more time after the meeting, please book an appointment at the office.
If you need any more tickets for the Spring Festival, please come and see us at the end of the day. They are £3 each. The sixteen pupils from Year 5 who will be singing at the festival next Wednesday have been practicing hard this week.
There are some photos of a Literacy lesson from last week where Year 5 used their dictionary skills and wrote their own concise definitions about various fairground rides.
We hope you enjoyed reading the Blog this week.

Have a great weekend!
