We love reading!

What a fantastic week, celebrating books and reading!

Our BD5 Bedtime Stories event was a great success, with over 500 people! Children and adults had the chance to watch top quality authors, poets and illustrators and even got to meet Book Start Bear! The event was featured in the Telegraph and Argus, read it here

We also celebrated ‘We Love Books’ day by sharing a story called ‘The Journey’ by Aaron Becker. The story is of a small girl who draws a whole new world of adventure using a red pencil. Children came to school dressed in red, in honour of the red drawings, and classes were asked to re-create the book themselves with their own text.

You can see a video of photos from the Bedtime Stories and We Love Books event here:

Dictionary Donation

The generous people from the Bradford Rotary Club, have kindly donated dictionaries to all the children in Year 6!

This will help to boost reading levels and vocabulary, in a fun and interesting way. The Rotary Club have always been very supportive of our school, and this is the third year they have given us such a special donation.

The story even made it into the Telegraph and Argus http://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/news/14783530.Bradford_pupils_benefit_from_donation_of_dictionaries/

Food Bank Collection

We’re collecting for the Bradford Food Bank again this year. The Food Bank help hundreds of families across the city, who are in urgent need of help. Last year, we managed to collect 500 tins, so our aim this year is to beat that record!

You can donate as much or as little as you like, but we are especially looking for tins, dried pasta, packets of sugar, packets of dried rice etc. Thank you.
