Good Morning to you all,
Some of you might have noticed the icon I chose for this week's message? If you did not, to save you clicking back, it was a BOOK. Which gives you a clue concerning my message and challenge for the week.
This week I have been thinking about reading. I did not really enjoy reading until I was older but know that I love having some quiet reading time for me and with my children. It so important that we do read lots!
I am aware you have not been able to change your books since lockdown and many of you might not have many books at home.
In the past we have put our book bank out for you to come and select a book and I know some of you have really enjoyed coming to the school to pick up a book. So, we are developing this idea into this week's challenge....
CHALLENGE 1 - MYSTERY BOOK PACKS
Come to the school and pick up a MYSTERY BOOK PACK. (These are white envelopes with MYSTERY BOOK written on them by the front office.) In that pack is a book from our Book Bank which is appropriate for your year group. Please take your MYSTERY BOOK PACK home and open it. Then I would like you to read the book indepednently or with any adult and complete the MYSTERY BOOK REVIEW included in the pack. (The reviews can be completed using pictures or words!)
Please then return the MYSTERY BOOK REVIEW to school. You are however allowed to, and please do, keep the book!
We then will put up the MYSTERY BOOK REVIEWS up in the Hall windows for others to look at and read. They then from your reviews, can decide if to order the book for themselves. To make this helpful and a success we need lots of you to come and collect a MYSTERY BOOK PACK.
When reading note down any new words, I find loads when I am reading, and using the internet or a dictionary find the meaning of the these words. You can write them on the back of your BOOK review so you can help me learn some new words!
WEEKLY WORSHIP - PLEASE RUN THIS WEEK'S WORSHIP AS A POWERPOINT SLIDE SHOW -
when you watch my welcome video you will understand why :-)
