Book Week

 

As ‘World Book Day’ is on Thursday we thought we would have a whole week all about books. In our book week we will be focussing our week on the authors ‘Claire Freedman and Ben Cort’ doing a different character who love underpants everyday! We will be sharing stories, doing crafts and challenges everyday and we hope you’ll get involved!

We will also be having 2 competitions, entries will need to be in by Thursday 4th March…

1.Whole school competition - Find the most unusual place to read a book, please send in your pictures and we will be announcing the winner at the end of the week!

2. Ahlberg competition- Monday’s art lesson focus will be making a book character from a potato! (Lots of ideas have been added).

Phonics, spellings and maths is also being set, just do as much as you can and don’t forget to send in photos of your child’s work. We are now be setting P.E challenges as well as the normal learning so we can all try and stay active together.

Have fun!
