Book Week 2015

Some thoughts from the boys about Book Week 2015.

Monday - Day 1

Christopher William Hill thoroughly entertained Years 5-8 this morning, sharing his love for writing and inspiring our boys! Unfortunately, David Gatward could not be with us but will hopefully be joining Year 3 and 4 on Friday. Instead, the boys had a wonderful time enjoying stories and poetry with Mrs Odell and Mrs Payne!

We are looking forward to The Young Shakespeare Company visiting Years 5 and 6 tomorrow and Pre-Prep and Year 3 enjoying their visit from Sally Crabtree!

A great start to the week and a special well done to the librarians for a super assembly this morning! 

Tuesday - Day 2

A fantastic performance from The Young Shakespeare Company this morning provided all the boys and staff involved with many laughs and smiles! In addition to this, an exciting visit from Sally Crabtree has inspired Pre-Prep and Year 3 to share and write poetry.  Thank you to Year 8 and to those staff who have been reading over in Pre-Prep this week as well; it has been a real treat for them!

Wednesday - Day 3

Nick Toczek has entertained all year groups today with his wonderful poetry. Each year group have been given some creative ideas to write their own poetry during their English lessons or at home this week. We can’t wait to share these with each other!

Pre-Prep and Year 3 have also enjoyed their visit from David Bedford, inspiring them with creative writing!

Thuursday - Day 4

Some brilliant books were brought in by the boys for Book Swap today! We hope everyone enjoys their new story! With all the wrapping paper building up in some classrooms, it felt like Christmas!

Day 5 - Friday

Book Character Day has been a complete success – what fantastic costumes! Well done for being so creative!  
Year 3 and 4 have been inspired to write some fabulous stories by David Gatward today too. A great way to finish the week!
