B Cador: March 2019
Our Reading Week has got off to a great start.
The children have raised an amazing amount of money (over £700) that will be used to choose books from the Usborne Book Fair on Thursday to replenish and update our class libraries. Thank you to all the children who took part and to all the family members who sponsored them to raise such a great amount.
Miss McKinnon came up with the great idea to ring the school bell at a different time each day during Reading Week, at which point all the classes would stop whatever they were doing and enjoy time reading. Yesterday it was Base 3's turn to ring the bell. Today it was Base 1's. The children were very excited to visit the classes and be the bell ringers.
At lunch time we welcomed Base 3 parents who came to join us for Pancake Day Parent's Lunch and they spent time sharing stories with their children.
After lunch, all the staff changed classes and found quiet places in and around school to take part in Story Swap. They reported back that they and the children had had a lovely time. Enjoy the photos.
Base 1 and Little Wrens invited mums and dads in to share stories with them before home time. Miss Pitchford has some lovely photos to share and will post them for you to see later this week.
We have lots more in the next few days as we look forward to World Book Day and dressing up as well as our Book Fair on Thursday.
A huge thank you to all for helping our Reading Week get off to a really fantastic start!

We've had a great time this week in Base 4. We've continued out work on properties of materials, investigating thermal insulators, dissolving and methods of separating materials. The children made some fantastic observations when finding out if materials were soluble or insoluble and lots of scientific inquiry was on display. I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
