Where do you like to read?
We really need new photos on our library walls and with this lovely weather and more freedom to get out and about what better opportunity than to take some more pictures of children reading in different places, the more unusual the better.
We especially need photos of Nursery children who are moving up to Reception for our EYFS Library, and children who will be in Years 1 and 2 in September for our new Key Stage One Library. Have someone to take a photograph of you reading a book somewhere unexpected and email it to the school by Friday 17th July
The photos will be displayed on the walls in the libraries with prizes for the best in each Phase.
Where do you think it would be good to read?
Whitehouse 500 Words Story Writing Competition
Many of you will have heard of the BBC 500 Words competition, in fact several of our children entered it! Well, now you are at home you are going to have a chance to write stories again and this time the stories will be made into books that we can keep in the school libraries for everyone to share. There will also be book prizes for the best ones! There will be three prizes, one for each the winners from Key Stage1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2. You can either write the stories in your best handwriting or word-process them. If you can illustrate them two that would be great!
Remember, a good story needs:
PLOT- Make sure it has a beginning, a middle and an end
SETTING-Set it somewhere you think would be interesting or exciting to read about
CHARACTERS-Fill your stories with people your readers would like to meet. They can be funny, or scary, or whatever you want them to be!
LANGUAGE-Try use lots of good descriptions of people and places
ENJOYABLE- Think of the stories you like to read. What makes them so good?
Get writing and good luck!
