Roald Dahl Day - 13th Sepember

On this date every year we celebrate the well loved children's author Roald Dahl. His magnificent stories and appealing characters have been adored by many generations of children.His stories are still part of the fabric of school life.  Many of the stories have been made into films and theatre shows therefore appealing to an even wider audience. There is a fantastic collection of his books in the school library if you would like to read one.

Summer Reading Challenge

Monday, 8 July 2019

The theme for this year's summer reading challenge is space and aliens. It will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of man stepping onto moon's lunar surface on 20th July 1969.Ther first person to do this was American astronaut Neil Armstrong, he famously said ' it is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'.

As usual you will need to read and review six books over the long summer holiday, collecting stickers, bookmarks, games and kit bags along your journey. All children who successfully complete the challenge will receive a gold medal and certificate during the autumn term.

The official launch is Saturday 13th July so go along to your public library and register to take part. It is free and fun. Havering has been at the top of the table for the past two years for the number of children who have completed the challenge, let's see if we can make it three in a row.

If you have any questions please come to see me or ask at your local library.

Paddington Bear Day 2019

Monday, 17 June 2019

Paddington day was a great success. Our children enjoyed working in a team alongside children from Broadford, Brookside and Crowlands school. They had great fun finding stations on a tube map, finding facts on Peru (which is where Paddington used to live with Aunt Lucy) as well as facts about the author Michael Bond. Some children even enjoyed eating the marmalade sandwich they made.

Paddington Bear Day

Tomorrow, Thursday 13th June, twenty children will be walking to Broadford School to take part in a Paddington Bear themed day. There are 10 activities to complete including making a marmalade sandwich, writing a postcard to Aunt Lucy, finding train stations on an underground map and, of course, reading Paddington Bear stories. We will join children from three other schools, Broadford, Brookside and Crowlands on this exciting day.
