Reading Rocket Challenge
Next week we are launching a reading challenge to encourage children to read regularly and read for pleasure. In the assembly room we will have a whole school display which will chart children’s progress throughout the challenge.
The aim is for children to read at least 5 times a week. The amount of pages each time should be appropriate to your child’s age. Each time they read, it must be recorded in their link book. E.g. Read to Dad, up to page 23. For the older children who may read to themselves, they can record their own pages but please add your initials to confirm they read.
For every 10 entries of reading in their link book, their ‘rocket’ will move throughout space and they will receive a small prize. Link books will be checked every Friday, so make sure they are in school to avoid disappointment. When they complete the whole challenge (100 entries!) there will be a celebration of the winners.
Happy reading everyone!
We were very lucky to be visited by an astronaut on Wednesday! She landed her space lander a couple of fields away because the battery needed charging. While Mrs Bruce helped her to charge the battery she stopped to talk to us about what life is like on the international space station. She showed us some of the items in her backpack and explained what they were for. The children were gripped by her story. Thank you to Theatre Alibi for providing us with this experience.

Visit from Wembury Marine Project
On Wednesday Coral popped in to talk to us about the work she does with the Wembury Marine Project. Class 1 learnt about many creatures that can be found in our local rock pools and about the Seashore Code which helps us to stay safe and protect the creatures and the environment. They were excited to take away a handy guide for identifying seaweeds and animals.
