Reading Celebration Week

Next Monday 26th February marks the start of our Reading Celebration Week. We wanted to share with you the exciting events we have planned at school to mark World Book Day.

 

Share A Story Mornings

On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, you are invited to join us at the start of the school day to share a story with your child in their classroom. You are very welcome to stay until 9.15am. We just ask due to limited space that you choose to attend just one of the four morning sessions available.

 

Lanchester Readathon

We are also launching our Lanchester Readathon to raise funds for our brilliant new school library space. Every child has been given a Reach For The Stars Reading Challenge Form. All the children who successfully complete all 20 of the fun challenges will be awarded a Super Reader Certificate.

 

If you would like to sponsor your child to read, you can donate at http://mydonate.bt.com/events/lcfsreadathon/457179. Parents who contribute to the Lanchester Readathon will get a donation sticker dedicated in their child’s name in a new library book. Cash donations are very welcome too. Please leave these in a sealed envelope at reception marked with your child’s name.

 

Library Display

We are also creating a new display in the school library and we would love to receive photos of you reading with your child. If you have a photo you would like to share, please give them to your class teacher in a named envelope next week.

 

World Book Day Tokens

Every child will be given a £1 World Book Day Book Token. These can be spent in WH Smith, Waterstones and all good independent bookshops. You can also exchange the voucher for one of 10 exclusive, new and completely free World Book Day books.

 

Dress Up As Your Favourite Book Character

Next Friday 2nd March, we would love the children to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. For some good and inexpensive ideas, please do look at the dressing up gallery on the website www.worldbookday.com

“ Yo estoy muy bien” - “ I am feeling great”

In Spanish, this term we have been learning about at colours and greetings. Stars Class is now able to say in Spanish: “I am feeling great”, as per the picture below.

We also played PE games in which we had to follow different instructions depending on the colour card we were holding. For example: “Stand up if you have rojo (red card)”

Funky fingers to start our day

After register, we always find a few minutes to improve our fine motor skills. We have been copying patterns using pegs to develop our maths and finger skills at the same time. Well done, Stars!

A big thank you to all the adults that helped us on this trip!
