Year 6 and Reception Buddies Book Event 1st February

On Monday 1st February we invited Y6 and Reception parents to a special book event at school. The Year 6 children all have buddies in the Reception classes. The children have formed excellent relationships and we wanted to celebrate this with staff and parents.

Before Christmas, the children in Year 6 wrote and illustrated a story all about their buddy. A local author, Tim Claydon-Butler, came in to talk to the children about planning a story and how to use the illustrations to support the story. The children worked very hard, thinking carefully about what kind of story their buddy would enjoy.

During the book event, Tim presented some prizes;

In Class 14 Olivia won 'best story' and Anabel won 'best illustration'

In Class 13 Kara won 'best story' and Lucas won 'best illustration'

Then the children and parents sat together and enjoyed listening to the stories. Thank you to everyone who managed to be there and to Tim for his support throughout the project.
