Book Week 2018 has begun and we have got a fun filled week ahead of us, sharing our love of books. This year's theme is 'Windows into Worlds' and we can't wait to use books as our windows into imaginary and extraordinary lands.
Please keep checking our web page to find out what we have been up to this week.
When we hear the bell we.... DROP EVERYTHING AND READ!
On Wednesday we had an Art afternoon. It was great fun! We created an under the sea collage using paint, wool, lolly sticks, gold material and shiny paper as well as lots of other things. As well as creating the sea we made a starfish, puffer fish, whale, shark, rocks, seaweed, dolphin, stingray, rainbow fish and jelly fish. Mrs Shrimpton then put all of the artwork on display in the hall along with the whole school story that we all wrote.
On Thursday some of our mums and dads came in to class to read with us. It was good fun sharing books together and we loved showing them our favourite books that we read in class.
We went to visit Hadlow Library on Thursday as well. It was lovely having lots of new books to look at and so many different choices to make. Then we made ourselves cosy and had a story all together. We should visit Hadlow Library more often!
What a wonderful day we had at Leeds Castle! We all made our Teachers and helpers incredibly proud with our lovely manners and super behaviour. The staff at Leeds Castle commented on what a pleasure we were!
We began by acting out the story of the Swan Princess in the castle grounds. We all had a special part to play and we all got to wear a costume... even the adults! We loved retelling this Fairytale and we linked the story setting to Leeds Castle itself. The helpers at Leeds Castle were blown away by our incredible acting skills... little stars in the making!
