Wear It Wild Day 2016

Friday 20th May was Wear It Wild Day in school. We got to come to school dressed up as our favourite animals. There was a whole school competition for the best costume in each class. The Panda won in Onyx class, can you spot him in the picture? ¬†ūüôā

We talked about why we’d been allowed to come to school dressed up and what happened to the donation we’d brought to school. We also talked about how it linked to our Environment Week ideas and how we needed to make sure the animals environment was still nice for them to live in.

We thought about our favourite animals and what we could do to help them. When we were talking about it we looked at the website for the World Wildlife Fund. Click here and here to find out more.

Corey’s comment above then started another conversation the next week……

Wonderful World Book Day 2016

We had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day this year. There was lots going on. Our school library officially opened so we went for a look round and to borrow our very own school library book. It was great to see all the books we could borrow and choose our favourite to take home.

We all got dressed up on World Book Day and wore costumes of our favourite book characters. Look how fantastic we look. Can you guess who we are?  

We went to a whole school assembly with Andy Messer who is a storyteller. He told us a wonderful story although we all thought it was gross when the monster was being sick! It was great to be able to see everyone’s costumes in school as well.

We also went to a special session just for Onyx and Garnet class with Andy where he told us another story just for us. We then got to ask Andy some questions about the stories he tells.

And we weren’t finished there! We decorated our door with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom with everyone working hard to complete their part of the tree or the their letter to climb up the tree. We had a look at everyone else’s doors round school as well.

What a busy day! We loved it though and enjoyed all the books and stories.

What have we been learning?

  • To enjoy stories and books.
  • To listen to stories.
  • To talk about the stories we hear and the books we read.
  • ¬†To talk about our favourite books and stories.¬†

How can you continue the learning at home? 

  • Look at your school library book together and share the story.¬†
  • Visit the library at Manor Top and take a book home.¬†
  • Make up some stories of your own together. What’s the silliest story you can make up? What’s the scariest story you can tell?¬†
  • Go to the Book Shop with your World Book Day ¬£1 book token and swap it for a free book.¬†
