World Book day is approaching and we will be celebrating! Although World Book Day is officially on Thursday 4th March, the academy will be celebrating our love for reading throughout the week by immersing in activities related to year group book themes. Here are the following themes for each year group:
Reception – We’re going on a bear hunt by Michael Rosen.
Year 1 – Exploring and immersing in poetry linked to Shirley Hughes ‘Out and About’.
Year 2 – The day the crayons quit by Drew Daywalt.
Time to get creative! On World Book day, Thursday 4th March, we would love for all the children – those who are currently attending the academy and those learning remotely at home - to dress-up as their favourite character from a story or dress up related to their year group theme. This year, like many previous years, we are encouraging children to wear clothes you have available at home or to get creative to make accessories for the dress up!
Share a story LIVE event! For the first time, the World Book Day website have organised an event for best-selling authors to read their stories LIVE for no-cost. The event will take place on World Book Day Thursday 4th March at 10:30am and can be accessed on their page. We hope you can join the session as we will be too!
New: Love Reading Webpage The academy are proud to announce and launch our Love Reading webpage on our Pound Hill Infant Academy website. This webpage will be updated frequently with our good read articles featured in our newsletter each week, it will include recommended reading lists and activities, as well as Teachers’ favourite stories.
