World Book Day 2018

 

World Book Day 2018!

We have had an exciting World Book Day 2018. We started off the day with an assembly where we introduced our story this year, which is ‘Flying Fergus: The Birthday Bike’ by Sir Chris Hoy. Fergus visited Ladywood where we found out it was his birthday and he was given a Birthday Bike. This magical bike transported him to Nevermore where we met Nevermore story characters. One character who arrived was Evil King Woebegot! He told us that he hates bike and he locked Princess Lilly in the dungeon! The only way we could get Princess Lilly back was if we completed our magical reading challenges and sang a magical song.

 

All classes worked hard to complete their reading challenges and we returned to the hall to release Princess Lilly!

 

Thank you for all your support. We really enjoyed seeing the children’s costumes.

 

Kind regards,

Holocaust – The Power of Words

Today we reflected on the Holocaust by taking part in the Holocaust Remembrance service. This year the event was about, ‘The Power of Words’.

We focused on how we can make our words and actions kind through the reading of a poem:

Tomorrow smile at someone

That you’ve never seen before.

Tomorrow tell somebody

How they brighten up your day.

Tomorrow hug your children

Somewhat tighter than before.

Be sure to think of all the things

You can be thankful for.

School Council Update – Toys

Hello,

The school councillors have been researching what children would like to have on the play ground in the future.

Coran & Joshua have found that children would like, bikes, a water pump, swings, slides, a rocking horse, a climbing frame, an inside trampoline that is inside a rocket, a tunnel leading to another part of the playground, a robot that you can get inside and ride for 1 minute, a maths table, and finally some round-abouts for toy cars.

What do you think we should get for the playground?

From Coran & Joshua.
