Books Glorious Books!
Many exciting activities have taken place throughout the school to celebrate book week. All classes throughout the week focused their learning on the book ‘Flotsam’ a book with no words but wonderful pictures that tell the story. All classes have created some wonderful and interesting learning from writing postcards and poems to creating imaginary under the sea scenes. What an exciting book week we all have had!
World Book Day 2017
It was lovely to see so many children and staff dress up as their favourite book character yesterday to celebrate World Book Day. Lots of time and effort went into the costumes and everyone looked great!
Swap Shop Book Shop
Many thanks to all the children who took part St Katherine’s ‘Swap Shop Book Shop.’ We had lots of wonderful books bought into swap and both children and staff enjoyed the event. Well done everyone! One child said “I love doing the swap shop, you get to read many different books that other children have read, I hope someone enjoys the book I bought in.
