World Book Day and snow days.

Another busy, fun-packed couple of weeks have passed and 4K have been working very hard. I was really impressed with all the fantastic costumes on World Book Day and not swimming meant we had more time to do fun activities. We were lucky enough to have stories read to us from around the world and even heard one read in Hindi. Thank you to all the lovely parents who came and shared their own love of reading with us. We loved having the chance to share stories with Year 2 and the children embraced this activity with their usual enthusiasm and read with great expression.

We have been doing more fabulous writing and this week have written letters trying to persuade Senhor, the woodcutter, not to cut down The Great Kapok Tree from the book of the same name by Lynne Cherry. Having written the letters, the children did some effective editing and redrafted their letters. These letters will now be the basis of a display in the Summer term.

Next week is Science Week and we will be doing lots of fun and stimulating activities on the theme of discoveries and inventions and will round off our week with a visit to Hazard Alley.

Hopefully, we have seen the end of the snow as we have a lot to do before we break up for Easter in less than three weeks time! This week, in amongst our science activities, we will plan our CAFOD fundraising stalls and begin making the Buzzwire games which we will use as one of our stalls.
