Literacy Week has proven to be a very busy week indeed!
Our wonderful trip to Harry Potter World on Monday set the theme nicely for a fun week ahead.
On Tuesday the theme was 'Language All Around Us' and pupils enjoyed a treasure hunt, exploring the school trying to find objects, words and symbols. Parents also attended our Literacy Workshop which focused on 'Total Communication'. They learned how literacy is taught across the curriculum and picked up ideas which can also be used at home.
Wednesday's theme was 'All About Instructions' and what better way to do this through fun baking sessions which encouraged the children to follow instructions and recipes cooking up some yummy magical treats.
World Book Day was on Thursday 7th March, a UNESCO initiative celebrating both books and reading. Our theme this year was of course Harry Potter. Throughout the day pupils took part in lots of activities such as swimming in the Prefects Bathroom, cooking up Potions, playing Quidditch, making Magical Music and Herbology and Wand Making in the sensory garden. It really was a delight to see lots of wonderful witches and wizards.
We have finished the week on Friday, themed 'Stories & Literature' with an interactive magical sensory story, as a fun and interactive way to end an exciting week!
