World Book Day
We had lots of fun this morning in Beech Class sharing information about book characters who we are most like. The children were able to explain to the class how their personalities are reflected in the actions and behaviours of their book character. It was really lovely to see the children so animated and loving the opportunity to 'book talk'. We are so lucky to have so many confident speakers in Beech Class. The characters ranged from real sportsmen and inspirational women in history to fictional wizards and witches. Thank you to parents and carers for encouraging the children with their costumes.
Beech Class APP Designing
As part of our learning in ICT, Beech Class have designed APPs which could be used on smart phones and tablets. They were asked to try and create an original idea that would support children with their learning or outside of school interests. Mr Frankow, who is our ICT Governor judged the APPs; he was looking for colourful and new ideas. The winning designs were very worthy winners. They included an APP that would encourage children's interest for reading and an APP which would support children's mental health and well-being.
