Book Week / Peter Bentley Author Visit - March 2019
Book week was lots of fun. During the week all classes listened to lots of new stories. We took part in the Hampshire Picture Book award which encourages children to choose a favourite story from four newly available titles. All classes voted to find a favourite and the winner was 'You're called WHAT?!' by Kes Gray.
The School Library Service visited to read stories to children in Reception and Year 1. Year 2 children visited Yateley Library.
On World Book Day we had a visit from the author Peter Bentley. The children were excited to meet a 'real' author and enjoyed his stories, particulary 'The Great Dog Bottom Swap'!
To end the week, the whole school embraced World Book Day dressing up as a character from a favourite book. We began our day with an Assembly to show off our outfits. We saw Mary Poppins, Willy Wonka, Harry Potter, Where's Wally, Little Red Riding Hood and many other well-loved book characters. Everybody looked fantastic.
