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!

Our Christmas choir have done some fantastic singing over the last two weeks! We had 2 really successful sessions carol singing in Sainsbury’s raising money for Shelter. We also had a really enjoyable sing at HEART for a community Christmas lunch. Well done children! (and parents for helping)

UPDATE – We raised £116.84 in Sainsbury’s for Shelter. (The school also raised an additional £74.66 from collections after the Christmas concerts.)

To celebrate National Anti-Bullying Week all the children and staff spelt out the word SAFE on the playground as a reminder that we we want all children to feel safe all the time. They were reminded that if they don’t feel safe they should TELL ( our other favourite word).
