Our children have produced some amazing work from our 'Lost Words' project in Day 10:10. In response to the removal of so many words of nature from the children's dictionary, the beautiful 'Lost Words' book was written. As a school, we have shown how much we value nature by using this book as inspiration for our own work linked to Nature. We have done nature trails, created fact- files and we have produced some inspirational artwork and poetry, inside and outside.
Our children have also created their own books in a creative home-learning project. Everyone has learnt so much and we all fell inspired by the work that has gone on this term.
"I love learning about nature- it is the best thing of all."
"It has been so special to find out all about nature in such a fun way. It has made me look more closely whenever I go outside- and I love spending more time outside now."
We now have our Gallery Event to look forward to, with all our work on display for everyone to see and admire on JULY 3rd at 5.45pm.
This week we have enjoyed a number of events linked to Easter. We held our annual egg-rolling event, with some beautifully decorated eggs brought into school. Luckily they were judged on appearance before being rolled across the playground!
We have all enjoyed celebrating World Book Day, and we have had so many events in school to encourage all of our children to develop and enhance their love of reading. All week, we have had special story-time sessions, giving everyone the opportunity to choose authors and books that really interest them. On World Book Day we began the day with a special book breakfast, and welcomed many parents, carers and grandparents into our school to share breakfast and a favourite story. We were delighted to see so many children (and staff) dressed as book characters and we want to say thank you to everyone who has supported this event to make it such a success. Hopefully our children are even more enthusiastic about reading as a result.
