Y6 Newsflash

Year 6 were lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit The Nuffield Theatre to watch the beautiful story of Hetty Feather, a book written by the best-selling children’s author Jaqueline Wilson.
The show amazed us all with incredible circus skills, beautiful storytelling and magnificent live music and songs. The children couldn’t wait to get back to school to start reading the novel!
Many thanks to The Nuffield for organising this wonderful opportunity.

EXTREME

During the half term break – why don’t you enter our “Extreme Reading Challenge” ? The winners of the competition will receive a £10 voucher!

This half term’s challenge is not just for children, but for parents too! Can you take a parent and child photo to bring in to your teacher of you both reading somewhere extreme?

Last year we had photos of handstand reading through to swimming pools, sandy beaches, and even up a tree! They were fabulously wild and wonderful! We do however, encourage you to keep safe- but we are looking forward to seeing which parent and child partnership has the most extreme passion for reading!

Please ensure you bring your entry back to school by Friday 3rd November, and ensure the back of the photo is named.
