Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed EBA Book Week! There has been so much going on, it's hard to know quite where to start...
Each class chose a book or traditional story that they would focus on for the week. The first task of the week was to create a huge reproduction of the cover of their chosen book, big enough to cover the classroom door! The artwork was very impressive, and we are very tempted to keep the doors looking so bright, colourful and exciting on a more permanent basis.
There were lots of activities throughout the week, and every class made a scrap book of their work which they packed full of illustrations and writing. The children all thought about books they had read, and picked their five favourites, which they talked and wrote about in class - the adults in school were also encouraged to do the same! There was a school-wide competition to design a bookmark, with a winner from each class.
Hamsters Class - "Cinderella"
Hedgehogs Class - "The Naughty Bus"
Otters Class - "Jack and the Beanstalk"
Squirrels Class - "Little Red Riding Hood"
Rabbits Class - "How To Train Your Dragon"
Badgers Class - "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"
Foxes Class - "The Long Walk to Freedom"
Deer Class - "The Shamen's Apprentice"
Meanwhile, the school kitchen also celebrated Book Week, modifying their menu for the week to give each dish a storybook theme! There was much excitement every lunchtime, because hidden somewhere in the dinner hall over the course of the week were twelve golden tickets, with a prize of a book for each lucky winner...
What a wonderful week! Have a lovely half term holiday, we will see you all back on Monday 20th February.
