⚽️📚⚽️Worth sharing this one again today! ⚽️📚⚽️

For all those of you out there feeling inspired by the last few weeks of #EURO2020 football, this is a great reminder that reading gets you where you want to be and helps you to fulfil your dreams – whatever they may be!

Best of luck to England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 (and Italy 🇮🇹 for the sake of impartiality!)

Extreme Reading Competition – Summer 2021

Now the school year has ended, could we ask you to think about different, exciting, fun and SAFE places you can enjoy a book?

Ask someone to take a photo of you reading your book in your extreme place.

Then you can either print it out and bring it to the school library or email it to afulton840@c2kni.net by Monday 6th September 2021.

Don’t forget to put on your name and class (if you know it).

Remember – parents can enter too! Their entries should include the name of their child.

There will be prizes for

  • the most ‘extreme’ reader in each year group (new intake; current year 8 and current year 9)
  • a parent prize

and

  • a staff prize.

You can enter as many times as you want!

All entries may be used for display purposes within the school or on the school’s website or social media pages. By entering you are agreeing to this.

Well done to everyone who entered our WBD competitions. We had a fun week.

One winner from each year group was randomly chosen from the correct entries.

Ms Fulton will be in touch with the winners to arrange collection of prizes.

Virtual Escape Room – Something for the weekend!

We have had a really fun week with all the World Book Day activities so we thought we would give you one more to end the week. Go to your library Google Classroom and give our escape room a try.

Police investigating a theft need your help to discover the location of the stolen goods. 

The strange thing is, the culprit seems to have left some cryptic clues which, if solved correctly, could reveal some vital information. Using the evidence presented to you, work out where the stolen goods have been hidden. You must read all the instructions carefully and look at the evidence to solve the clues before moving on to the next step of the investigation. Happy sleuthing! 

Enter via the form in your library Google Classroom.

Closing date is Monday 8th March 

One winner in each year group, chosen randomly from all the correct entries.
