6th March - Dr Seuss Dress Up



Sports for School Sponsored Fitness Event - 4th March

Today Hannah Whelan came to school to tell us about her life as an Olympic Gymnast. We all took part in a circuit of fitness activities, for sponsorship, to raise money for sports equipment for school, for Action for Children and to help Sports for School support future British athletes. 

Here we are in action .....



Week beginning 3rd March

We will be having a Book Week to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday March 5th. As you will know, the works of Dr Seuss are the theme of our week. This should provide lots of fun, as well as promote reading and give the children fun writing opportunities. Lots of nonsense, lots of rhyme - Dr Seuss himself said:

"I like nonsense. I wakes up the brain cells."            

As well as the opportunities for literacy, we will be looking at some quotes taken from Dr Seuss' books that give us all something to think about! Here are some examples.


Today you are you, that is truer than true.

There is no one alive that is youer than you.

And will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed!

(98 ¾% guaranteed!)

You can find magic wherever you look.

Sit back and relax.

All you need is a book.

You’re off to great places,

Today is your day,

Your mountain is waiting,

So get on your way.


The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Think left and think right and think low and think high,

Oh the things you can think up if only you try!

You have brains in your head,

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.


Don't forget to check out the class pages at the end of the week to see what has been happening!
