Winter Drawing Competition

Well done to Sam from 8Ba for winning the Winter Drawing Competition.  His design will become the front cover of our book of writing, to be published by Scholastic during the Summer Term.  The book will be available to buy and I hope everyone will want to have a copy!

Read For My School

Year 5, 6 & 7 took part in the Read For My School competition from January until the Easter holidays.  Between them they read hundreds of books, encouraged each other to read, read more,and more widely, than ever before.  The competition is run nationally by the Book Trust to inspire young people to read and to enjoy reading.  We awarded prizes to those who had tried the hardest, read more than they had ever done, and shown enthusiasm for the project.  There was a book prize for one person in each class that took part, and a Kindle Fire for one child in each year group who had shown especial dedication and commitment. Well done to everyone who took part, and especially to those who won prizes for their achievement.

Book Quote Competition

The Book Fair is coming up (starting the week beginning 17th November) and as usual I am running a competition alongside it. This time I want you to find a quote from a children’s book and illustrate it. Your quotes and designs should be inventive, colourful and from interesting books. The best ones will be put onto canvas and displayed permanently in the library.

Please make sure your entry is:

A quote from a children’s book

Done in felt tip.

On an A4 sheet of paper.

And have a centimetre blank rim/frame around the edge so that the image can be stretched to fit the canvas.

The competition opens on Monday 10th November and will close on Friday November 21st.
The winner and runner up will receive £15 worth and £10 worth of books (respectively) from the Book Fair. The top 6 will be put on canvas.

Give your entries to your English teacher or to Mrs Haxell.

Good luck!
