Readership Team meeting
Meet our school librarians! Our librarians are responsible for ensuring our Reading Room is accessible and tidy for all classes to use. They also look at the texts in the Reading Room and ensure we have a wide variety of texts for all ages.
Year 4 had an author visit from Philip Sheppard. He shared books he had written and illustrated, and even gave us a sneak peek into the new book he’s currently working on. The children completed a draw along with Philip Sheppard, which shows we may have some future illustrators at Holy Family.
Reading- Parvana's Journey
The children in year 5 have thoroughly enjoyed immersing themselves in their new class book- Parvana's Journey. This story follows the adventures of a young girl, whose father has just died, on her way to find her mother and sisters. Take a look at what they have been working on so far.
Year 4 created 3D portraits of famous books that they have enjoyed reading. Can you recognise some of the famous titles?
Year 1 World Book Day 2023! Year 1 really enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters this year and working together with Year 2 to create artwork for our chosen book 'The Enormous hungry crocodile.' We created a 3D crocodile's body to display in our reading room using paint, cardboard, paper and glue! We also created wooden spoon characters from the story such as crocodiles, monkeys and elephants.
EYFS children have used a range of different media to create fabulous art work. Tissue paper, wool, paint, feathers and cotton wool were all used for a purpose to create different animals linked to their chosen book. They chose 'What the Lady Bird Heard' as there reading for pleasure book linked to World Book Day 2023. New skills were taught and previous skills were applied. The childrens creations look fantastic displayed in our reading room.
