We are extremely proud to announce that we have two more word millionaires this week! This is an amazing achievement Abigail and Eleanor, well done to both of you! Congratulations to Eleanor also for being our first ‘millionaire’ from year five! There was a very loud gasp in assembly at this news this morning, followed by a very well deserved round of applause!
Thank you so much to our ARP children for organising a fantastic day of fundraising for us to help support comic relief. The children organised a sweet sale, sponge throwing, crazy golf, a penalty shoot out, face painting and many more activities to raise money for children less fortunate than themselves.
Through this the children learned a great deal; not only about the good causes that the money will support, but about how good planning, organisation and teamwork can make a difference. The children are now very busy counting the money and we will announce the amount raised shortly. Well done everyone!!!
Fantastic news, we have three more word millionaires in our midst!! A huge congratulations to Emily, Erin and Faith for this wonderful achievement!! We are very proud of you all, not only for your enthusiasm for reading but your hard work, dedication and superb attitude to learning. Well done!!
To further enhance our love of reading, today we came to school dressed as our favourite book characters and brought in our favourite books. Through this we have discussed our favourite authors and story characters.
We invited Sarah Griffiths, a children’s author in to school to read some of her stories to us and to explain how she became an author. She told us how she has wanted to be an author since she was little and was inspired by her Head Teacher who gave her gold stars for her writing! We know that we have many budding authors within our school who listened intently to Sarah’s story.
We also received a visit from the Rotary Club who very kindly donated lots of books to the school. We are very grateful for this fantastic opportunity and look forward to working with the Rotary Club more in the future.
We love reading with our buddy class partners! Our older pupils play a great role in inspiring a love of reading to our younger pupils. We are very proud of their maturity and enthusiasm in helping to foster a love of reading throughout the school.
We would like to thank all of our parents and carers for their fantastic support in providing wonderful costumes and supporting us in making this a memorable experience for the children.
