World Book WOW Week
2nd March - 6th March
We have a full week of engaging, stimulating and fun activities planned.
Read for meaning; read for fun is our motto!
We have many reading sessions when key skills such as: questioning, clarifying, predicating and summarising are taught, encouraged and promoted to help create confident and happy readers.
Let's talk, allowing groups and couples (reading buddies) time to discuss what they have read is KEY. It allows children the opportunity to form opinions and enhance understanding. Be WORD AWARE!
Monday 2nd March
BUG CLUB DAY - please can children come dressed as their favourite BUG, this can be as simple as a child coming dressed in their favourite, brightest clothes and making a bug mask ( over the half term) to wear on the day. This will help bring our BUG CLUB reading to life. We have exciting plans for the morning – promoting reading, and learning new vocabulary with our WORD PARADE!
Thursday, 5th March - WORLD BOOK DAY
Please can children come dressed as their favourite book character, and bring in their favourite book to read with other children.
There will also be a table outside for children to bring in their personal books - that they are happy to swap for a new one . We will discuss before, the importance of children bringing in books that they are only happy to give away, or replace for another one. Sharing is caring!
Friday 6th March
Chris White, a famous author, will be visiting our school to give all the children a master class in writing for fun and meaning.
He will be reading out his work, and promoting the love for reading, writing and being creative!
The Makory Museum Bus Experience:
With the help of Gill Lynam, Liz Jackson and the Parish Council - we have secured a great, exciting experience for our Stanley children.

REMEMBER the MOTTO- TRY YOUR BEST AND FORGET THE REST
'Stanley the Boneful'
The children are studying Vikings and poor Stanley the Boneful needs clothes, armour and weapons.
They have been given a challenge as homework to make something that will protect him from the Wolf Men (characters form the 'Viking Boy'), and garments to keep him warm.
The children have worked extremely hard and have produced some wonderful work.
Our Year 6 Directors from ICT ,Creative Curriculum and Eco organised a fun filled day based around our class read 'Viking Boy'. The children took part in acting out a Viking battle , finding clues in a scavenger hut , designing a Viking brooch, making a long boat and making soup fish plus lots more!
Thank you for completing your homework, it is lovely to see such dedication shown . Mrs Knifton and I have enjoyed reading through all your homework and have enjoyed displaying it around the classroom.
Our BIG Question
Should zoos exist?
Writing a balanced argument
Today has been a day revolved around trash, which is the name of a book we’ve been reading. This day has been organised by Rebecca and Keira, who are the directors of Reading and Nurture. This morning, everyone in Golden Eagles arrived in Trash related clothes, and throughout the day, we have been doing Trash related activities.
