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. At the village hall, for a two hour session, each class will be led by Derby Museum Learning Facilitators, and get to use the Makory Bus to focus on one-two of the following themes:
On Tuesday, 3rd March Kingfisher Class and Robin Class will have their session.
Wednesday, 11th March Puffin Class and Golden Eagles will have their session.
