Lock down World Book Day 4th March 2021
Here are some great photos from the children who were at home learning on World Book Day.
It looks like you all had a great World Book Day!
Wow, Foundation! What an amazing 8 weeks it has been. You have blown us all away with your fantastic attitudes towards your learning and the challenges you have faced. We are SO PROUD of each and every one of you and your phenomenal resilience. It has been a pleasure to teach you all at home! I can’t wait to see you all on Monday! 🙂
This week, in literacy, we have been learning all about dinosaurs. We labelled dinosaurs, wrote a postcard to a dinosaur and even went on a dinosaur themed reading treasure hunt! This linked to our Cornerstones topic ‘Dangerous Dinosaurs’. We have been looking at Julia Donaldson’s ‘Cave Baby’ and identifying prehistoric animals.
In phonics, we have been continuing our learning on adjacent consonants or consonant blends. We have read, written and used adjacent consonants. We are even fantastic at putting our words into context to help us understand what they mean. We are now so confident!
In maths, we have been looking at our number of the week – number 9. We have been using the bar model to partition number 9 and have been learning about measuring. We have been looking at different ways of measuring using different resources like rulers, cubes and feet! We even extended our understanding by discussing what we can measure. We knew we could measure many things such as time, length, height, width, speed and weight. We used our metacognition minds to plan, monitor and evaluate our process for measuring the witches broom from ‘Room on the Broom’ on World Book Day! We found that the broomstick was 7 cubes long.
On Wellbeing Wednesday, we talked about returning to school and how we might be feeling. We also looked at our new social story and discussed the things we are looking forward to on Monday.
On Friday, we had a celebration of our amazing learning over the last 8 weeks. We feel so proud of our resilience and enthusiasm! We watched a video of all of our fantastic learning, here is a short clip:
Here we are sharing our favourite pieces of work with our friends:
Well done again, Foundation, for being home learning heroes!
We had so much fun for World Book Day today! We all dressed up in fantastic costumes and were so excited to show our friends. We were very creative and made some of our costumes at home! 🙂
We discussed our favourite stories and used our oracy skills to explain why we liked them so much. Miss Banning shared her favourite stories with us too. They were called ‘Whiff’ and ‘Helpful Henry’.
We then completed an exciting maths activity all about ‘Room on the Broom’ by Julia Donaldson. We used cubes to measure the broomstick and used our metacognition minds to plan, monitor and evaluate our learning. We discovered that the broom was 7 cubes long.
Have a look at our amazing costumes:
Remote learning didn’t get in the way of our celebrations today. All the children bought their favourite book to our zoom sessions to share why they loved that book so much! Have a look at all of the different books we shared.
Year 6 have been enjoying World Book Day today! During our Zoom sessions, we dressed up as our favourite book characters and listened to a small part of one of Miss Tapp’s favourite childhood books. We shared some of our own favourite stories and books and had a go at a book emoji quiz!
Around the School in 13 Bubbles!
I was lucky enough to take a socially distanced journey around the school to take some photos of the children dressed up for World Book Day. There were some fantastic costumes from all year groups. Thank you to everyone who joined in both at school and at home. Photos of the children who are currently home learning will be added to the blog at a later date.
Wow, what a day we’ve had celebrating books and reading. The children made a wonderful effort with their costumes and absolutely loved being read to and sharing books with Year 4. What a treat!
Hazeldown School have enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day! Do you like our costumes?
Hazeldown School are celebrating World Book Day today; dressing up as our favourite book characters and sharing books together.
Happy World Book Day everyone!
Today, Year 3 had a special visitor as part of the school’s ongoing celebrations leading up to World Book Day this Thursday. Alina Constantine, a bilingual story teller, read to the children an exciting story in Romanian and English.
The children also learnt some Romanian key words and took part in freeze frame activities to show case their new learning- linked to the MFL curriculum.
As part of PSHE “Respecting Differences” the children were also given insight into aspects of Romanian life and culture.
Willow class have had a fantastic afternoon sharing stories with Oak class! Thank you!
Maple and Cherry Class got together today to listen to each other read, to make new friends and develop our love of books. What was your favourite book?
The sun is shinning for our re-scheduled World Book Day! The children look wonderful, dressed in their character costumes. Fir class really enjoyed reading their favourite stories to the Foundation Stage children. Which book characters can you spot?
This morning in Palm class all children showed off their fantastic costumes of characters from their favourite books!
We had lots of fun creating story maps of our characters in the book and drawing beautiful pictures to support our sentences.
World Book day is here and there is no better way to celebrate than reading your favourite books. Fir class travelled down to Maple and were able to share their fantastic fancy dress and stories that they enjoy.
Here are some pictures,
Willow Class and Redwood Class spent a lovey half hour sharing stories this morning. Redwood Class used their best reading voices to bring their stories to life!
Who would have thought poor Gangsta Granny could get quite so confused with writing a letter… Luckily, Mr Stink and the Boys in their dresses were there to save the day!
Unfortunately, some of us were too scared of the Demon Dentist to tell her she’d put the address in the wrong place – we all know it needs to go in the top right corner really!
Huge thanks to our amazing Ratburger burglars too, for reminding us how to include an introduction and conclusion in our letter!
Today, we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters from stories written by Roald Dahl.
Our chosen book was ‘The Twits’ and we spent the day emerging ourselves in the text with fun and exciting activities.
One of our main activities was to re-create a scene from the book using puppets. We made our own puppets and backgrounds, wrote scripts and then recorded the whole scene on an IPAD.
Fir class really enjoyed dressing up for world book day!
They took part in a range of word games to help their story writing skills and carried out activities related to ‘Bills New Frock’
Well done for a super effort everyone!
Today the team got into the spirit of things and dressed up to celebrate World Book Day. Anthony Browne was our inspiration and this is what we came up with.
Can you guess who’s who?
This week the children have been bringing in books ready for their book swap on World Book Day. We have had lots of books brought in and plenty of happy children with their new books.
As part of world book week, children bought in unwanted books from home throughout the week and received a voucher for each book. Today, year 1 really enjoyed visiting the Ks1 Book Swap Emporium and had an enormous array of books to choose from.
To celebrate World Book Day, the children at Hazeldown School have been bringing in their old books to exchange for new ones to read!
Next week, we will start our new topic ‘A World of Fantasy’ which coincides with book week. The children will be writing their own fantasy/adventure story and make a movie trailer to advertise it!
Have a look at the plan to see the other exciting things we are doing which relate to the topic!
Can you think of other activities which relate to the topic which we could possibly include in our SOLE work?
Which character will you be dressing up as?
There are so many to choose from!
Fir class have started reading ‘Bill’s New Frock’ in preparation for book week. Don’t forget to decide which Anne Fine character to dress up as on book day…
