Book Exchange returns next week! Years 4-6 will be in Monday afternoon and EYFS up to Year 3 will be on Wednesday. Children need to bring in a book, leave it in their bag and then when called they will have the chance to go to the dining room and exchange for a new one! Simple!
Upper key stage 2 were treated to a spot of nature, this morning. A small deer/muntjac was eating grass on our playing fields. The children in Rowan, Spruce and Willow were in awe. 🦌
Here is a great example of Andy Goldsworthy style art that the children did with Miss Benn on the KS2 field! I’m sure you will agree it is beautiful!
Don’t forget to send in all of your books that have been read for the exchange! We are in need of some Year 3/4 level books to any upper KS2 children, have a look at what you have! We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Here are the winners for KS1, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6. Daisy from Beech was the EYFS winner. Well done to everyone for a great effort with this homework, as a whole staff we were very impressed!
The scene is set! We are ready to take delivery of our book fair on Monday! We will be open straight after school all week. Monday will be in Larch Class and then in the hall for the remainder of the week. Come and support us, keep your children reading and help raise funds for our school library!
