Booknic

For the second Young Readers event, Mr Knight organised a booknic for the children in Years 2, 4 and 6. The children took part in a book-themed scavenger hunt, received a brand new book and enjoyed some tasty treats!

Young Readers Programme

Years 2, 4 and 6 are involved in the Young Readers Programme this term. The programme aims to motivate children to read for enjoyment through a series of literacy events that celebrate the fun of reading. At each event, the children independently select a new book of their choice to keep. The first event was just before Easter and the theme was ‘tuck in and read’, celebrating bedtime stories.

There will be one more event in school later this term (‘Booknic’), and the final event will be held at the British Land offices.

Prom Praise

On Tuesday 19th March, the choir had a fantastic experience of singing alongside 4000 students from the south-east of the UK. They spent a few months preparing the songs and actions and it was incredible hearing all the voices singing as one.

The event told the story of Moses and the exodus out of Egypt through music by the All Souls Orchestra as well as dance and acting. All the students thoroughly enjoyed it and the adults even got a tad teary during Amazing Grace!

Comic Relief

We had a great time last week raising money for Comic Relief! The cake sale was a great success – thank you to everyone who donated or bought cakes. We have some very talented bakers in school! The children loved taking part in the danceathon – it was great fun! We raised over £300, so thank you all very much for your generosity.

Book Week

We have loved celebrating all things book-related this week! We have been welcoming a Mystery Reader into each class each day; stopping whatever we were doing and grabbing a book for ‘Drop Everything and Read’; swapping our World Book Day vouchers for a free book at Daunt bookshop; sharing books with our parents on Thursday afternoon and wearing our pyjamas to school! It really has been a fantastic week.

A special thank you goes to Mr Knight for organising it all, and to the parents and carers who have supported us by sharing stories, customising pyjamas and most importantly, inspiring a love of reading in our children.

#DontBeIdle

On Friday we had a film crew in school who were making a promotional video as part of Westminster Council’s #dontbeidle campaign. Pupils from Year 5 and 6 had starring roles and showed a great deal of talent! We will let you know when the finished film is available for viewing.
