Bailey loves to read at home and reads every night to his little brother Jaidon – well done Bailey! Reading superstar!
My favourite books are The Snail and the Whale and The Gruffalo. I also love Oliver’s Vegetables. My favourite part in the story is where he finds all of the vegetables and eats them for dinner then he realises that he likes them!
Frankie is a superstar – she is not only brilliant at reading but she loves reading too and knows lots about different authors. Well done Frankie!
I love reading books like The Owl Babies. I am reading ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’. I really like this book. I have lots of books by the author Julie Donaldson including: Tiddler, The Gruffalo, Room on The Broom, Tabby Mctat and Stick Man.
As well as reading the books, I like to look out for the hidden Gruffalo illustrations.
My favourite book though is ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. When I read it with my Daddy, He says I am really good at doing the voices of the baby owls. I got this book from Father Christmas, he also brought me ‘Mog – The forgetful Cat’ by Judith Kerr. I really like that book too. Mog forgets everything and he forgets about his cat flap and a robber steals from Mog’s house while every one is asleep but Mog meows at the window and he scares the robber who gets arrested.
As part of Child Mental Health Week, the children in year 3 have been discussing bravery and what it means to be brave. They loved reading and discussing the story of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. They talked about Plop’s journey of personal discovery from a shy, timed and frightened owl to a brave and courageous one. They then began to design their own
characters which will all overcome a challenge by being brave. By the end of the session, the children were able to say that bravery comes in different shapes and sizes. Being brave means different things to different people. For some it may be asking for help in class, for others’ perhaps learning to swim. Everyone is different and we ALL NEED TO BE BRAVE SOMETIMES!
Charlie is this weeks Year 2 Reading Champion because he loves to read! He always reads at home and has so far read lots of classics such as George’s Marvellous Medicine.
I am reading different poems from the Mother Goose book.
I have Read 100 poems from it and there is even a cheese on toast poem which is my favourite because it is funny.
I always read at home and I like reading at weekends and in the morning.
Well done Charlie! It is fabulous to hear and see children enjoy reading!
The children in the Hub have been demonstrating excellent use of fine motor skills this week for our Chinese New Year celebrations.
We enjoyed our food tasting session with noodles, spring rolls and rice crackers on the menu. We used chopsticks to eat our noodles with and Raphael was crowned King of the Chopsticks.
The children displayed safe use of scissors and excellent cutting skills making their lanterns.
Good speaking and listening skills were also displayed during our story of the day ‘Cleversticks’, beautifully read by Stephanie.
Thank you to our Foundation Stage 2 parents for attending our Read, Write Inc meeting this week. If you missed the meeting or would like to find out more information about how to help your child learn to read, see the attached leaflet below:

This weeks reading champion is Molly who is currently reading George’s Marvellous Medicine! Well done Molly!
I am reading George’s Medicine and I am really enjoying it. My favourite part is where the Grandma and George are mean to each other. He is so polite but his Grandma is mean to him.
I have got up to the part where where Grandma can no longer fit in the house because George has made a medicine so that she has grown so tall.
I really like reading at home and I always read at bedtime. by Molly
In F1 we have started building our own stories using our Tales Toolkit. We know a story needs a character, setting, problem and solution.
