World Book Day Thursday 5th March 2020

This year World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March 2020. To celebrate this we will be learning specifically about different authors and incorporating lots of fun reading activities into the whole week. We will be having a ‘Celebration of Reading’ afternoon on Friday 6th March and hosting a ‘book swap’ on the same day. We thought it would be a lovely idea for your child to bring one book that they no longer need at home and exchange it for a different book. We will also be holding a story character competition. We would like your child to create a story sack character made from either a stone or a wooden spoon. As part of our celebrations, children from Years 1 & 2 read books to the children in our reception classes. Parents were also invited to come into the classrooms, at the end of the week, to read with their children. These experiences were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Please see our photos.

Safer Internet Day Tuesday 11th February 2020

#Goldilocks is a modern twist on the classic fairy tale that offers a fun and accessible way for you to discuss all things social media related with your younger children. Co-branded by Vodafone UK and Andersen Press, award-winning author Jeanne Willis created the light-hearted story alongside illustrator Tony Ross. The book is designed to help educate children about the potential consequences of being unkind, getting carried away with selfies, or oversharing images, as we see Goldilocks getting into trouble with the three bears over her pursuit of likes on social media….

Goldilocks

During internet safety week our Year 2 children have been discussing in their classes what to do if something appears on their computer screens and they have been learning about the importance of not sharing personal information online. The children created a 'SMART' internet safety poster.

This year we will not be having a dressing up day, but instead will have a "Dress a Potato Day" where the children will be invited to bring in a potato (or other vegetable) that they have made to look like their favourite book character.

Year 2 Classes - Oak and Sycamore

As part of our multi-cultural World Book Week we are reading the story Ada's violin which is based in Cateura, Paraguay. We started our week with an exciting hook into our learning, using clues to find out what our story was about. In English we have been learning about the meaning of some new vocabulary and finding out more about the 'slums' of Cateura. We will be using all our gathered information to write a description of the 'slums' that Ada lives in. We will be making instruments out of recycled materials, just like they did in the story. We will also be learning more about the importance of recycling.

Early Years Classes - Maple and Willow

Our focus for book week is the continent of Asia - did you know there are 32 countries in Asia?! We cut out all the flags for each country to make some bunting. We have read stories that were set in this continent & have looked at some of the features of these countries compared to our own. We had great fun outside making a couple of Tuk Tuks and have learnt a song that we will sing in our special assembly at the end of the week. We have also looked at some of the animals that live in Asia & used different printing techniques to create pictures of pandas, elephants, leopards and tigers.

Friday 8th March 2019 - World Book Week

What a wonderful book week assembly we had today! All the children were able to share what they had learning about in their different year groups.

Our Early Years Classes told us all about Asia. We learnt that this continent has 32 countries. The children brought some of the work they had been doing during the week to the assembly. This included two terrific tuk tuks, amazing art work, fantastic flags and Asia flag bunting. The children then sung us a song (to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus) all about tuk tuks.

Year 1 told us that they had been learning all about Anna Hibiscus who lives in Africa. The children had drawn their own families and compared their lives with the life depicted by the fictional character Anna Hibiscus. They had drawn some magnificent posters about Nigeria and created some Nigerian patterns.

Year 2 told us the they had read Ada's violin, a story that is set in Paraguay a country in South America. They had learnt about poverty and the slums and why recycling our waste is so important. The Recycled Orchestra in Paraguay use materials they find in the landfill to create their own instruments. Year 2 showed us some of the musical instruments they had made from recycling.

Unveiling the bricks. Nov 7th 2018.

Twelve children accompanied Mrs Cox and Mrs Barbuti to the Armistice event at Barratt homes new development Roman's quarter today. Barratt Homes collected us on a bus and took us to the site where we saw the wreaths made of all the bricks that we had painted. The children also laid a wreath in front of the first street name on the development. All the streets will be named after men from Bingham that lost their lives in World War 1. We listened to the Toothill Big band and enjoyed the choir performance from Robert Miles Juniors and Carnarvon.

Eco Event 8th October 2018

Thank you to all the parents and children that came along to help us tidy the school grounds this afternoon - your help was very much appreciated. The bamboo and willow in the sensory garden has been cut back and the raised planters cleared of debris. The boundary fence border has been dug over and lots of wildflower seeds have been sown. We also planted a variety of bulbs. In the spring, we hope to see a colourful display of wild flowers that will attract and help lots of wildlife to thrive. The children have painted cobble stones to create a feature in the middle of our wildflower border - see the photo below.

SCHOOL YEAR SEPTEMBER 2017 - JULY 2018

World Book Day 2018

Due to the adverse weather conditions and subsequent school closure we celebrated World Book Day on Monday 5th March 2018.

The children were invited to come to school wearing a costume that reflected a character from a book or story that they particularly enjoy. The children worked in new groups (mixed ages/classes). They had fun listening to and participating in exciting activities linked to the following stories:

  • Snow White
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Cinderella
  • The Princess and the Pea
  • Hansel and Gretel
  • The Frog Prince

In the afternoon we held a special World Book Day assembly. We wanted to get the children excited about books and inspire a love of reading. It was an opportunity for staff and children to share their favourite authors and books. The whole school were able to see the exciting things that the children had been doing and to see the amazing array of costumes.

The day culminated in parents/carers coming into school to share a book with a small group of children. A huge thank you to all those parents, grandparents and carers who were able to participate - the children really enjoyed it.
