Celebrating writing success


Wren class have entered two writing competitions this year,  one titled 'A Wander in the Woods' and the other named 'Peculiar Pets'. The children were given some vague writing criteria but, other than that, they could be as creative and imaginative as they liked. The entries were excellent, so much so that we received certificates and bookmarks to reward their efforts. Well done children! 

Virtual lesson with Author Dan Worsley

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.

Once again our wonderful children have triumphed in their writing. We entered the Young Writers competition, for which the children were asked to write a poem about monsters, and lots of the poems have been selected for publication. This is amazing news, to have so many of our children's poems deemed worthy of publication is just phenomenal. Well done to all our wonderful writers!    


Here are some examples of the speeches the children wrote about answering the question: why it is important to learn about other cultures?

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. 

World Book Day 2018 - Year 6 came to share stories with Year 5.

The children enjoyed a wonderful storytelling experience of The BFG this afternoon. They listened, observed and laughed as the story unfolded and the exceptional storyteller(Anthony Pedley) brought fiction to life.
