World Book Day Event & NSPCC Presentations

2nd March 2017

World Book Day –  Thursday March 2nd
This year we are holding a competition for children to enter.
The challenge for families is to create a poster of you reading in the craziest place ever!!
The idea  is for children to either draw or use a  computer image – super impose a picture of themselves, and their family if you wish, onto a landscape, object, place or creature…….. you name it,  the crazier the better!!! You must show the book title on your poster. There will be prizes for the top ten entries.
We hope that the posters create a sense of curiosity about children’s book choices and encourage children to share their favourite books in a creative and crazy way. The posters will be displayed in the school library. All entries must have the child’s name and class clearly written on the front design.  Thank you. Now get the creative juices flowing!!
Entries must be in school on Wednesday 1st March.

Thursday 2nd March is DRESSING UP day……. “HURRAY”!!!    I hear all you parents/ carers and teachers chant!!
Pupils and staff are asked to dress up as their favourite character from a book.  Please make an effort;  it is always difficult for the few children who arrive in school in their uniforms, feeling very self-conscious.

NSPCC Workshops

This week we are welcoming a representative from the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Each Key Stage will listen to an age appropriate presentation from a trained society member of their education team. The presentations will inform and raise awareness to the various ways that children can keep themselves safe from harm. This is a sensitive subject, but nevertheless one which is important to explore and provides children with the emotional literacy. This presentation is one that is used across the county and is well tried and tested for it’s appropriateness and awareness raising impact

Pupils in year 5 & 6 will receive workshop presentations where awareness to the issues can be appropriately addressed and discussed. Please support your child and this charity.

Yr 5 – NSPCC workshop – 11am

Yr 6 – NSPCC workshop – 1.15pm
