Weekly Roundup – Junior School
This week has been a great week for stories! We kicked off in assembly on Monday with a story under the visualiser by Oliver Jeffers called, 'The way back home'. We recognised themes about our school values of respect, resilience, integrity and enthusiasm in the story, as a little boy and alien helped each other find their way home from the moon (with a few challenges along the way). We loved the picture where they shook hands when they met.
Year 3 have been working hard on telling the Christmas story for their Nativity, 'There's Only One King', and you can see a sneaky peek of their rehearsals here. I've been lucky enough to hear them practicing in the afternoons from my Office- I promise you are in for a treat!
We also took an exciting delivery of some forest themed furniture for our beautifully wallpapered forest library! Mrs Offler has great plans for putting the final touches our library to make it the most relaxing, cosy space for curling up with a book. There are no pictures for you yet (we're not quite finished), but keep your eyes peeled for future updates!
Don’t forget- the Junior book fair continues today and on Monday and Tuesday on the top playground. Feel free to come along and have a browse!
