The Masked Reader
To celebrate World Book Day, we want our children to film themselves reading an extract from their favourite book in disguise. On Monday 8th March, when all of our children return to school- yeah! We will show the recordings in class. Can children guess the person behind the mask? What are they reading? We hope that this activity will be lots of fun for everyone.
Mrs Teale and Mr Frelich (our English Leaders), are delivering collective worship on Monday 1st March. In this assembly, they will tell you all about World Book Day and answer any questions that you may have.
-On Thursday 4th March, key worker children can come to school dressed in their disguise and record their masked read with the support of their teaching assistant.
-All masked readings need to be sent to the class teacher through Class Dojo – before Monday 8th March.
-Recordings to be no longer than 30 seconds.

School is closed today until 10:30am due to the snow. We have many staff who live some distance away, and are not able to get them safely to school in time for a 8:40am opening.
The weather forecast suggests that conditions will start to improve by mid-morning, so we are very hopeful we will manage to open for 10.30, but will keep you updated if the situation changes.
Lessons on zoom start at 9am as usual, other than for Foundation Stage pupils. FS2 lessons will be starting later today as Mrs Taha is trying to get in to school and lives quite a distance away.
Take care on the roads and thank you for your understanding.

We are very proud of Alfie and Hughie who ran the ‘Virtual London Marathon’ with their mum to raise money for Rethink Mental Illness. Both boys ran a mile with their mum and together they raised £6350.
What an achievement!
Coronavirus has now taken over,
We all have to stay apart,
But if we listen to the government
There will be no broken hearts.
We miss you
We love you
But it is hard to tell
We will be together soon
So there is no farewell.
We can sing
We can dance
We can learn to tie our lace
We can play ball, do makeup and funny faces.
After 12 weeks we are all together,
but for how long?

Year 4 are still managing to work as a team, even when far apart. With the help of their parents/carers, they managed to create this lovely video. Thank you so much, we miss you all too!
In February, Year 4 all entered the BBC 500 words story writing competition. Every child in the class worked extremely hard on their entries and I am incredibly proud of all their efforts. One student in particular however deserves an extra round of applause for their achievement.
Yesterday, I had an email from the BBC 500 words to say that Kate had made it through to the next stage of the competition. Out of over 135,000 entries, only 5000 stories have been shortlisted and Kate’s is one of these. Well done Kate- lets hope you make it through to the final 50!
