This week has been bursting with book based activities in celebration of book week, with plenty of opportunity for our families and friends to join in! Yesterday afternoon our teachers swapped classes, reading stories in a different year group to their own. At the beginning of the week the children swapped classes, being given the option as to which class they wanted to go to based on the book lead activity taking place. There was hunting for a bear in the nursery from We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, making wands in Red class from Room On The Broom and creating superhero puppets in Yellow class from Super Dad. The fun didn’t stop there! In Year 1 and 2 we had poetry and drama from Green Eggs And Ham, a stained glass window effect Elmer, wanted posters from The Witches and kite making from Flat Stanley! Parents were invited into the classroom to read with their child, we also ran several competitions over the week which involved parental support. Book prizes were given out to the children that had read the most books on “Bug Club” this week and also to the class that had read the most books. Throughout the week we read 643 books on Bug Club across the school, which is fabulous news, we hope this continues. Well done! For the first time ever at Beulah we ran a competition to create a “book in a box”. We have been truly astonished at the number of families that have risen to the challenge and have been successful in creating the most amazing “book in a box”. The imagination and resourcefulness that has been exhibited is remarkable. We will be displaying many of these creations around the school. Winners will be announced next week, it is going to be a very difficult decision! A huge thank you to all of you that took the time to work with your child to construct these intricate artefacts.
