Spooky Story Time

On Friday 25th October, the children came to school with an age appropriate book, magazine or even a short text written by them that fitted the theme of science fiction/thriller/horror.

The children were given an opportunity in their classrooms to share a selection of those stories around a 'campfire' in the true style of a chilling tale.

Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sharing a book for pleaseure with a friend or two, and even bought in a torch, teddy and a cushion to hide behind! 

"I enjoyed sharing my story with friends, it was fun!"

"I wrote my own story to bring in; it took me all week. It was very good!"

Wintery Read

Following the success of the ‘Spooky Story Time’ held in October, we decieded to have another reading event.

On Wednesday 18th December, we invited the children to come to school with an age appropriate book, poem, magazine or even a short text written by them fitting into the theme of winter or Christmas to help them get ready for the upcoming Christmas break and festivities. We created a snowy, winter scene in the classrooms, put on our hats, scarves and gloves and shared our stories.

The event was very successful – enjoyed by all!
