World Book Day 2021

 

It's World Book Day and we are going on a pirate adventure! First, there is the story 'The Pirates Next Door' about a boy and his family.  Next, we are pretending to go and have an adventure so grab your cutlass and your telescope and let's go and find some treasure!  There is a yo-ho-ho PE pirate lesson and finally the hilarious story, 'Pirates Love Underpants' to end the day.    


This is the first year there has been a World Book Day song.  Listen to the song and watch the video and see how many books you can spot.  Every child has a £1 voucher waiting at school to spend on a special £1 book or to use as a voucher towards another book.  These will be handed out on Monday.  

 

I hope to see you on Teams at 1.30pm today.  I would love to see your craft activities and hear about your adventures.  We will be having a special book raffle too. 

This year the staff at school have dressed up for 'The Masked Reader'.  Here is the link.  Can you guess who it is?

I have included a short time lapse video showing how cress grows.  Hopefully, your cress will grow the same way (but not as fast!) and you will be able to cut it with scissors.  It takes around 6-8 days from sowing the seeds till it is ready.

Please listen to today's story before the cress seed activity as it will help to develop your child's understanding and give them an opportunity to build their vocabulary.

🐻 We're Going On a Bear Hunt 🐻 With Michael Rosen

Thursday 28th January

 

Today I have added a link from Numberblocks with the focus on more than and fewer than.  To help boost their understanding, you can ask your child throughout the day if there are more items or fewer items between two groups of objects from around the house.

 

Thank you for your support.

I have included the text 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' as a link for retelling the story.  You will see me model it today with actions.   Please use the text to tell the story and ask your child to help you and join in with the actions.  We will retell the story lots of times this week in our activities and soon the children will take on board the story for themselves.

 

I have also added a music activity today to use our lovely home-made castanets or you can hand clap to a simple repeated rhythm.  

 

Lastly, another lovely story from Schoolreaders about a polar bear.

 

Have fun!
