Cypress Lower ‘Virtual’ Book Week
What a fun ‘virtual’ Book Week we have had! Thank you to all the parents and staff who have enabled our children to fully engage with the book activities we have had this week. We are blown away with the potato book characters, the Reading Rivers, the extreme reading places and the responses the children have had to their author visits.
This week we have met the wonderful Chitra Soundar, who has inspired Year 1 with the mysteries of the giant pumpkin in Pattan’s Pumpkin!
We have introduced our wonderful Cypress friend, Margaret Bateson-Hill, to our Early Years children, with tales of frogs and crocodiles!
Year 2 have met the inspiring author Mo O’Hara and learnt so much about how to plan a story. They had the opportunity to ask Mo questions and planned very thoughtful and appropriate questions – well done Year 2!
There is so much amazing work on the class blogs and very little space here to showcase all the brilliant work the children have done. The staff have enjoyed seeing the children’s engagement with books and stories and are bowled over by the incredible work the children have produced. Well done Lower school!
Reminder: Mystery Story competition – final deadline to hand in to your class teacher is Friday 12th March. If you have already written your story you might want to think about how you want to present it, add any illustrations or even edit it to make it even better! Please make sure your name and class are clearly written on your entry. 3 stories per class will be sent to our judge, Margaret Bateson-Hill who will decide a winner. We hope to announce the winners from each class before the end of term and award the £10 book vouchers. Good Luck, Mystery Writers!
World Book Day vouchers will be coming home on Monday. They are valid to exchange for a WBD book or £1 off a full price book until 28th March. Please look at this website to find out how and where they can be used: https://www.booksellers.org.uk/wbd
It truly has been a wonderful Book Week. The children have produced some amazing work. Many thanks to Cypress PTFA for funding our author visits.
Keep reading, Cypress!
