Year 5 and 6 Reading Cafe

This morning was the turn of Years 5 and 6 to hold their reading cafe. The book we were reading is called The Tunnel by Anthony Browne. The whole school are concentrating on it this week.

We read the book out aloud stopping at the Waste ground scene where the children thought of noun phrases to describe what they could see. They then thought of questions they could ask others about where the tunnel led to, finally we made still scenes of the forest trees which gave characters hidden amongst them.

Thank you to the parents and grandparents who managed to join us despite the snowy conditions.

A book called Wonder

After the Christmas holidays Year 5 will be studying Wonder by R.J. Palacio. If anybody is looking for Christmas ideas it would make a great gift and would be very useful for children to have a copy in class! 

It is also a film and has just been released. If at all possible could children NOT see the film as it is better for them to read the book in class ‘cold’. I am hoping to be able to take the children to see the film after we have studied the book. More details about this will follow next term.

Thank you Mrs Jeary

Socks Socks Socks for Anti-bullying week!

Today, Year 4 and Year 5 displayed a very colourful assortment of odd socks which really helped emphasise the message that everyone is valued and differences should be celebrated. Our differences mean that together we can be even more brilliant.

‘All Different All Equal’

In Year 4 we have been talking about different types of behaviour e.g. being rude, being mean and bullying.  We have also made a jigsaw puzzle where each child has created one piece about themselves.  The puzzle has no straight edges therefore allowing others to join. We are also reading Conker by Michael Morpurgo which deals with issues surrounding bullying.

Thank you for all those who donated £1.  The money will be counted shortly and I will share with you how much has been raised for the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
