Maple and Cedar classes celebrate World Book Day!

As part of our whole school World Book Day celebrations, Years 5 and 6 had a class competition. Each child had to try and persuade the rest of the class to read their book. We spent time thinking about how we might persuade other people to vote for our book; through writing speeches, researching the author and making posters advertising our books. We then presented this to the rest of the class. The range of books inn Years 5 and 6 was brilliant!

Gotham’s 100 million minute reading challenge!

As part of our world book day celebrations, all the pupils took part in Achievement For All’s 100 million minute reading challenge. Lots of schools across the country took part to see if children could read for 100 million minutes. In just one week, children at Gotham Primary School, managed to read for 18,897 minutes at home! This is an amazing achievement! The winning house team, with the highest number of minutes, was Jupiter with 5136 minutes. Well done team Jupiter!

Book week in Beech class!

In Beech class we have been studying the book “What the ladybird heard” for book week!
We have done lots of exciting activities like directing a ladybird using left and right, painting a page from the book, and using laptops to retell the story to people.
We made masks and role-played the story to an audience!

In DT we have been experimenting with different ways to make moving pictures. Lots of us chose to make a slider or a pivot using a split pin.
We had lots of design ideas and then mad our favourite one!
