Junior Book Week 2019
Once again the Junior School have had an enjoyable Book Week. They started with a Peer to Peer Reading session which involved the younger forms being paired up with older pupils. All the children listened in their pairs to each other reading, with older pupils giving helpful advice. It was lovely to observe these interactions and to hear the children exchanging views on the books they particularly like reading.
In Form Periods the children have taken part in various book-related activities, including mindfulness colouring, making bookmarks, doing word searches and completing book reviews.
The annual book cover competition resulted in an excellent display of beautifully designed book covers with interesting “blurbs”. The winner in each class was lucky enough to be given a £5 voucher to spend at the Book Fair. Teachers and Teaching Assistants were kept busy selling books after school for three days. This resulted in an impressive amount of over £900 worth of books being purchased. Mr Dennis is going to be busy choosing new books for the library with the money we earned through these sales.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our Book Week this year.
