Story Book Advent In The Library!

This week we were surprised to find boxes full of presents in the library!
 We delved deep into the boxes to find, not one, but more than 40 packages wrapped in festive paper!

Tia ripped open one of the presents to find our first story for the month of December - Winnie and Wilbur Meet Santa! The children remembered reading about Winnie before and were excited to see what adventures she got up to this time.

Our second story was opened by Ellie-Mae. This time we read The Best Christmas Present Ever!

Daniel and Aimen were the lucky ones from Rowan Class to choose - they unwrapped Merry Christmas, Hugless Douglas and The Stinky Sprouts in a Rather Smelly Christmas Tale!

We can't wait to see what books we'll unwrap next week!

Autumn Term PRL Winners 2018!

A huge well done to our Super Readers - James, John, Harry, Leah, Katlyn, Nicole, Laura and Mrs Chance. Together they earned more than 900 points!

To celebrate their success, they were rewarded with a trip to watch The Grinch at the cinema, followed by lunch in McDonalds.

The Premier Reading League will return in January.

Abie Longstaff Visits Broadford!

Pupils in Key Stage One had the pleasure of Abie Longstaff visiting them last week! Abie shared her love of reading, explaining to the children how she comes up with the ideas for her stories and what inspires her to write.

Abie spent some time with our younger Spinebreakers in the library. They asked her questions about her work...

Year 5 Spinebreakers Visit Waterstones!

Last week, our Year 5 Spinebreakers took their annual trip to Waterstones in Romford. They spent some time browsing the thousands of books Waterstones has to offer.

They chose two new books for our school library and enjoyed hot chocolates and festive cakes in Costa.

Alex picked up a copy of Jeff Kinney's latest release in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series - The Meltdown. Being a Harry Potter fan, he was eager to get his hands on J.K. Rowling's Chamber of Secrets.

The Person Controller by David Baddiel and Dav Pilkey's Dog Man were the two books Joshua was drawn to.

Esther was blown away by the amount of books to choose from, but in the end she picked out Nevermoor, The Trials of Morrigan Crow and Olivia and the Snowflake.

Maisie is in the Christmas spirit! She chose a copy of The Grinch, The Story of the Movie, and Jacqueline Wilson's The Lottie Project.

The new books are now available to borrow, please see Mrs McFarlane in the library.
