Our School Library
This half term has seen our school library re-open to the children so they can have regular weekly visits reading and enjoying the wealth of fiction and non-fiction books we offer. The library has provided a calm and cosy environment for the children to share books and listen to stories. The children will be bringing home a chosen library book weekly to share at home. A perfect opportunity to share and read a new book at bedtime!
Nursery have enjoyed “The bus is for us!” written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Gillian Tyler
This book is a simple rhyming book about going on different types of transport and what they enjoy, but best of all they like the bus. For example, “You can fly to the moon on a hot balloon, or take a trip on a big ship”. The children really enjoyed using their imagination and talking about where they would like to go on a bus.
Reception have really enjoyed reading the story 'The Colour Monster Goes to School' by Anna Llenas.
The Colour Monster learns to express his feelings and overcome his nerves in this beautifully illustrated book. The children could relate to how the Colour Monster was feeling and it enabled them to grow in confidence to talk about how they felt starting school.
Newt Class really enjoyed learning all about Mary Anning this half term. During story time they loved reading the Little People, Big Dreams book all about her. They found her life fascinating and were amazed that she discovered the first Ichthyosaur.
We have also read a lot of different exciting books about dinosaurs including Mad About Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs Day Out and The Dinosaur Rap but Mary Anning, Little People, Big Dreams really inspired them to find out more about her life.
Fox Class enjoyed listening to the story The Fox and The Star by Coralie Bick-ford Smith. This book has stunning illustrations which the children enjoyed admiring and discussing. This beautiful story explores the themes of friendship and loneliness. All the children were pleased to see this book had a happy ending! Why not give it a read and find out what happens to the Fox
