In celebration of World Book Day on Thursday 4th March, the children had a virtual lesson with author Dan Worsley, who shared: information about his past, why he wanted to be writer, the books he already has published and that a new one is out later in the year. He read from one of his books as well as told a story he wanted to share. The children showed how well they listened by answering questions and we just had enough time at the end for a Q and A session at the end. We are looking forward to inviting Dan into school as soon as possible.
On Monday 14th October, Claire Ollett a specialist in Egyptian history visited St. Mary's and shared her wealth of experience and knowledge with the KS2 children. Please read the feedback that Claire provided for the school.
Aristotle Word Book Day 2018
We were very lucky that two groups of Year 6 children came to read to us on World Book Day. One group used puppets to retell the story of The Gingerbread Man, they even allowed us to ask them questions about their favourite stories afterwards. Another group lead us around the outdoor area retelling the tale of The Three Little Pigs and used our resources in a fantastic way to keep us entertained!
Einstein class - World Book Day
To celebrate World Book Day Einstein class were treated to a story reading by some of our Year 6 children. The children read an extract from The 13 - Storey Tree House by Andy Griffiths. The class were completely hooked and this will hopefully encourage them to read more stories from this much loved series. A huge well done and a thank you to William, Harry and Shay who read and performed beautifully.
On Thursday 2nd March, it was national world book day, as a school we celebrated on Friday with our 'book on a hat' theme. Our children created their favourite book on a hat and could dress up too if they wished. We had a school parade and had winners from every year group chosen by our office manager, Mrs Tew and a school governor, Mrs Thwaites.
