World Book Day - Thursday 8th March 2018
Today we celebrated World Book Day (a week late because of the snow). We all came to school dressed as book characters and we all looked amazing. Throughout the day, we enjoyed a host of reading-based activities. We started with a special assembly in the hall, where the teachers introduced the characters they had come dressed as and shared some of the book. Then we all got a chance to show off our costumes in a Character Catwalk! Back in class, our classroom was set up like a restaurant for a book tasting. We got five minutes at different tables to have a taste of different genres and create mini reviews and a personal reading wish list. Before break, we got to attend the book swap organised by the PTA. Then we created our own potato book characters! We had an incredible day and hope you enjoy looking at our photos.

Can you give reasons for the symbols of the Advent Wreath?
Wednesday 22nd November 2017
Today, we put our flower-arranging skills to the test as we made our own mini Advent Wreaths in RE. As we added each element to our wreaths we talked about the symbolism. We are taking our Advent Wreaths home to help us use our time of waiting in Advent well. Can you remember why a circle is used? Why are evergreens used in the Advent Wreaths? What does the holly remind us of? What do the purple candles represent? Why is there also a pink candle? Why is the wreath lit progressively? Can you give any other examples of how we use our time of waiting in Advent?
