Celebrating our love of reading

During our month-long ‘Festival of Children’s Literature’, we have been celebrating our love of reading and all the ways in which books enrich our lives. At break times, the children have been greeted with a read-aloud by staff members in the Greek Theatre. The Festival will culminate tomorrow with the ‘Elephant Trunk Book Awards’ and the ‘Book Character Parade’, and we will showcase some of the innovative costumes and designs next week, along with the winning books. Here is Ms Jem, giving her ‘in costume’ reading of the wildly funny, ’The Book With No Pictures’ by B. J. Novak.

Year 4 Project: Journeys of Wisdom
For their Project this year, our Year 4 children embarked on an extraordinary journey into outer space. Each journey, we believe, is a repository of knowledge and wisdom. We live in a world abundant with data and information, but wisdom is scarce, and this became an anchor point in their Project journey. Inspired by the James Webb Telescope, and talks with NASA expert, the children set about to design their very own exoplanet.
