Today sees the launch of a brand new reading competition run by the National Literacy Trust to celebrate the 50th birthday of Ian Fleming’s book ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’. There are lots of exciting prizes to be won!

Chitty Chitty

In the original story, the magical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car takes the Pott family on a very special journey. To take part in the competition, children will go on their very own magical reading tour, spending time reading both at home and at school, in order to fuel Chitty’s tank.

For every 10 minutes they spend reading, children will earn one litre of fuel for the tank – 10 hours (or 60 litres!) in total. They will record their reading in their very own “Driver’s Log”, and every child who successfully fills Chitty’s fuel tank and completes their magical reading tour will receive a special certificate in Good Work Assembly and will be entered into a national prize draw to win prizes such as an e-reader, original artwork from the book or books for the school library.

World Book Day was a huge success at Spring Bank – everyone had lots of fun dressing up as their favourite characters, guessing who everyone else was (see pictures below) and searching for Willy Wonka’s (a.k.a. Mrs Birdi) golden tickets. Mrs Bonner kindly agreed to judge the door competition, which was a very difficult task – each class had to turn their classroom door into their favourite book cover. Congratulations to Year 3 who won with The Wizard of Oz.

KS1 had a fantastic afternoon on 26th February with Stephen Waterhouse, a local children’s book illustrator and author. He shared his work with the children which included cards, jigsaws and advent calendars as well as reading from one of his books ‘The Runaway Chapati’ which sparked the children’s enthusiasm to create their own runaway food! You can see more of his work at www.stephenwaterhouse.com

 

With expert guidance given by Graeme Creaton the children have so far learnt how to remove their wheels, remove the inner tube and repair a puncture!
