We shared our love of reading

At Tankersley Primary School we believe that reading is of the upmost importance and the key to successful learning.

On Thursday 7th March we held a ‘Shared Reading Session’ at our school. Older children from classes 6, 5 and 4 were invited to join the younger children in Nursery, Reception and classes 1, 2 and 3. Parents and family members were also invited to attend. They enjoyed sharing a book whilst eating delicious pastries and having a drink.

The response that we had from the children and parents was wonderful.

The classrooms were over spilling with happy children sharing their love of reading.

This event was a huge success because our older children are brilliant role models. This is not just a one off event, as on a daily basis the Reading Ambassadors read with children in Year 1 and 2.

Our children received a valuable message today that enjoyment of reading is very important.

Please look at the many photographs which were taken, showing our school sharing in the pleasure of reading.

Story Sacks…

To celebrate World Book Day this year the children were asked to choose theirfavourite story or nursery rhyme and recreate key features from the story in a draw string sack.

The story sacks are now displayed in the library areas in the school corridors and in the reading corners of every classroom. Mr. Beet has made us some amazing wooden stands to showcase the children’s wonderful work. There was a prize for each winner in every year group. We have had some amazing and very creative entries. Have a look at some of the children’s creations in the photographs taken.

When parents come to visit school for parents evening, please take the opportunity to look at these wonderful story sacks.

World Book Day at Tankersley

After the Fall

On Thursday 7th March we celebrated National Children’s World Book Day.

On this day we carried out a variety of activities based around the theme ‘Nursery Rhymes’.

Every class carried out activities based on the book ‘After the Fall’ written by Dan Santat.

After the Fall follows Humpty Dumpty, an avid bird watcher who loves to be high up on the city wall. But after his fall, Humpty is terrified of heights and can no longer do his favourite things. He finally pulls together the courage to climb back up the wall.

Fancy Dress

The children came dressed as their favourite Book/Nursery Rhyme character. Even the staff got dressed up! The costumes were judged and prizes were awarded to the winning entries.

A fabulous time was had by all!
