The Book Bus is coming to school

On Thursday 13th July, The Book Bus will be coming to school for the whole day. The Book Bus sells books at discounted prices (up to 75% off shop prices).

The bus will be in the playground before school and after school, so parents can go on board with their children.

Each class will also have the chance to go onboard and buy a new book. Children can bring money into school so that they can buy a new book.

Please come along at the following times to get on board the Book Bus:

8:00 – 8:45

3:15 – 4:00

P4C – Inter-School Debating Project

Last week, Childwall Primary School sent a group of children for an ‘open debate’ with the pupils who attend our Debating Club.  This was the second time that the schools had got together, after linking up for a trip to parliament earlier in the year.  The motion that the children discussed was whether children such as themselves should be given the use of a mobile phone.  It was lovely to see the respect between the two groups of pupils, with all the children speaking clearly and intelligently on the subject.  We’re now looking forward to having a more formal debate next half term.

Spelling Bee

Well done to the 6 pupils who won prizes for being the most improved spellers in class.

Well done also to the 6 pupils who took part in Spelling Bee itself.  All 6 did extremely well under the pressure of performing in front of the whole school.

An extra big well done to the Spelling Bee Champion for Autumn Term 2016.

World Book Day

As part of our World Book Day celebrations and to share and encourage the joy of reading the children dressed up as their favourite book characters, visited Central Library for a special story telling session and went to Fact cinema to watch a film about the importance of reading. EYFS and KS1 also  had a special visit from the fire service, who read them a story and then showed them their fire engine!

Well done to our fancy dress winner, who won free cinema tickets to return to to Fact!
