Highlights of Book Week

Posted: 22nd March 2016 | Category: Kindergarten, Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

Book Week ended with a fabulous Character Costume Parade on Friday morning. We were really delighted at how much effort everyone put in to their costumes and it really was a colourful and dazzling display.
As it was a sunny morning, we took a vast number of photographs and you can see these in the Library.
One highlight of the week was our Dinosaur Rumpus! Year 7 and 8 pupils recreated the wonderful Tony Mitton story, ‘Bumpus Rumpus Dinosaurumpus’ and brought to life many different dinosaurs. The Junior children came down to the astro and joined in all of the ‘Thwack Thwack Thwacks’ and  ‘Donk Donk Donks’ and ‘Clatter Clatter Clatters’ of the dinosaurs.
At the end of the adventure we all congoed up the hill to the Gym and enjoyed juice and biscuits. It was great fun and really lovely to see the younger children enjoying their time with the Seniors.
Again, there are lots of photos in the Library for you to see.
The Juniors read masses of books and recorded them on their giant bookworms; there were author and character competitions; a dinosaur-trail with hidden-author names, and lots and lots of writing done during the week.
We actually wrote a School Book! KG started it off on the Monday morning and it went to every class in the school until it was completed by Year 7 on Friday afternoon. Eventually, it will be illustrated and bound - and will be found in the Library.
Thanks to everyone involved!
