Reading for Pleasure - Wednesday 1st May
Mr Snadden and I were delighted to see so many parents attend our learning cafe on Wednesday 1st May. We were so pleased to have some incredible books to hook KS 2 readers that had been donated by the Children's Book Centre in Alby. Parents and children really enjoyed the huge variety of books and it was the aim of the cafe to see children reading with their parents and find some lovely books to spike their interest in reading again. We also had some craft activities on offer but it was superb to see the reading was the most popular activity!! We had some wonderful feedback and as always were so delighted with the parental engagement. Some parents even bought the books so the children were happy to take these home. Since then we have had some parents to offer to volunteer in our library to champion passion for reading!! Wow!! what a great response.
Thank you so much. Mrs McCaig
RE Learning Cafe - Tuesday 2nd April
The Juniors had a RE Learning Cafe where we learnt about the festival of Holi. Holi is a spring festival which celebrates the triumph of good over evil and looks towards new beginnings. It is also known as 'The Festival of Colour' as people often throw coloured powders and water over each other. We used splatter techniques to make paper figures nice and colourful, made paper versions of pichkari (the water pistols used to squirt coloured water), did some colouring sheets and wrote/illustrated some of the facts we had learnt about Holi.
GR8 AS UR Learning Cafe on 27th November 2018
Wow! What an amazing turn out for our launch of the 'Can Do' (part of our GR8 AS U R scheme). With over 60 adults and 90 children everyone had great fun building newspaper towers. The aim of the cafe was to promote resilience and it certainly did this. Well done to the winning team, whose tower was a whopping 9 foot tall. Thank you to everyone who attended and we look forward to seeing you again at the next PSHE Cafe.
