Bonkers about Books!

User Rating:  / 2

Our first week back this half term gave us lots of opportunities to further develop both our reading skills and our love of all things book related.


We practised our phonics skills in preparation for our phonics screening in the summer term and demonstrated just how much progress we have been making. We really impressed the teachers and they were very proud of our hard work and efforts - now we have to keep it up so that we keep improving!

We began our English work linked to our topic of school days by thinking about the Roald Dahl story of Matilda. We have been writing diary entries about experiences at school and making some links to the contrasting characters of Miss Honey and Miss Trunchbull. As a result, we are improving our sentence structure and developing accuracy in our writing.

World Book Day

Finally, we enjoyed World Book Day. A great opportunity for us to dress up as our favourite book characters (some costume were truly wacky and wonderful!).

 We shared books with our friends in Year 5, completed activities linked to our Big Read text of Fantastic Mr Fox and played a Guess Who quiz to idenitfy famous book characters.

1AL were even lucky enough to have Mrs Sanford come along and share a book in another language. It was great to hear her read in Bulgarian.

It was a fabulous day full of fun and it has inspired many of us to keep reading a breadth of books at home - especially as it will help us to achieve the gold award in our Reading Challenge.
