Winnie-the-Pooh the main theme for Book Week

Posted: 8th March 2017 | Category: Reception, Years 1 & 2, Years 3 & 4, Years 5 to 8


What a wonderful week of book related activities we have had!  Our main theme this year was 'Winnie-the-Pooh', to celebrate the 90th anniversary of this classic character.

Plotting co-ordinates, Mrs Box's students created pictures of Pooh Bear and his friends. In English, Y4 wrote newspaper articles, reporting on how Winnie-the-Pooh got stuck at Rabbit's house and how his friends rallied together to help.  Please come and look in the library to see some of their work, including Y4's attention grabbing headlines!  In Art, Miss Alexander has worked with the children to create pictures of book characters.

On Thursday, the senior school (Y7 and 8) led the Juniors and EY on 'An Expotition to the North Pole'.  Great fun was had by all as Guthrie bravely led the expedition, calling on Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends to join him.  There was lots of singing to keep the explorers' spirits up and, finally, Pooh Bear found the North Pole (on the grass near the swimming pool!), before heading inside for hot chocolate and Wendy's delicious honey biscuits.  Huge thanks must go to the Y7's and 8's for showing such kindness and consideration to the younger children and running the event so responsibly.

Once again, Cocoa Evening was a great success as the Juniors and EY wore their pyjamas to listen to stories.
Book Week culminated in our Costume Parade on Friday with the children (and staff) all taking part. As always, Harry Potter was a popular theme as well as some 'Wallies' and all the characters from Winnie-the-Pooh - including a rare appearance from a heffalump.
Well done to everyone for taking part and joining in the fun. We raised lots of money for charity and look forward to doing it all again next year!
