Special interest weeks

Autumn

 

The theme for our first Special Interest Week of the year is 'We Are Reading' with the aim to encourage every child to read for pleasure. We have had a very busy week and it has been so much fun! To start the week the whole school participated in lots of carousel activities including singing story raps, scavenger hunts and yoga to name just a few. 

 

On Wednesday a librarian came to visit us to tell the children that Bamber Bridge library will soon be reopening. Year 1 also had a special marble jar party with Year 3 where the children sat together to read stories and enjoy hot chocolate. 

 

On Thursday morning some of the children attended the 'Books at Breakfast' event with their families. They enjoyed breakfast snacks and snuggled up to read a book. That afternoon it was our turn to visit the Book Bus! Everyone was very excited to buy a new book to take home.

 

On Friday we had a special visit from an author who read us a lovely story.

Throughout the week Year 1 focused on the book 'Room on the Broom' by Julia Donaldson. We learnt the story using T4W. The children made changes to the story including the object that the witch loses and her pet. The children also participated in lots of different activities in continuous provision.

The children have created some artwork using tints and shades of paint to make a background for Room on the Broom silhouettes. They have also read recipes for the first time and followed them to make 'magic' fruit smoothies.

As their Homework Challenge for the week the children had to read a different bedtime story to a different person in a different place each night. The children sent in their photographs and it was lovely to see how much they were enjoying reading! We'd like to say a big thank you to all of the parents and carers for joining in with this!
