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
Here are some (but not all) of the children who were chosen as ‘Reader of the Term’, ‘Most Improved Reader’, ‘Spelling Bee Finalist’ and ‘Most Improved Speller’. Some of the children won a trophy; others will be getting a book when the Reading Bus comes later in this month. Well done to them all.
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.
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.
Six pupils from Year 4 attended a writing workshop that was run by Chris White. The children really enjoyed the day. They said that the work was really fun, and the staff who took them said that they were really engaged. Well done.
Twelve pupils from Years 5 and 6 have been joining children from five other schools to take part in a writing project at St Michael’s School in Aigburth. The project is led by Steve Padget, a consultant who works on creative approaches to writing.
This morning lots of parents and carers stayed for our first Parent Workshop of the year. Miss Dean talked about how we teach children to read and write through phonics and gave out useful resources packs for children to use at home.
Years 5 and 6 watched a brilliant performance today of Charles Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’.
