It was fantastic to see the Year 4 children curiously searching for new books at the Reading Roadshow today. It was also great to see what a wide range of reading material was being taken home. Readers are most definitely leaders!

Today has been a very exciting day as we have had a Reading Roadshow in school. Hosted by the Wood Street Mission pupils were invited into the hall to look at a variety of different books. They were then given the opportunity to pick 5 books of their choice, which they could keep and take home. As you can imagine the children were very excited about this and loved their experience.

For children from years 1-nursery you will have the opportunity to pick your books next week.

## Gingerbread Man English HOOK 1M

Today, Year 1 went to Bowkervale’s kitchen to make Gingerbread men. This was part of our English ‘hook’ as we are going to be learning how to write instructions on how to make a Gingerbread man over the next few weeks. The children loved being in the kitchen and getting involved in the making and baking process. They poured, mixed, measured, rolled, cut and decorated their gingerbread and enjoyed eating them before they ran away!
Now we will recap on our experience to write a really good set of instructions for others to read and follow.
