Books and Beyond Launch 1st February 2018
To launch our annual reading challenge - Books and Beyond - we held a Fancy Dress competition.
These are our winners!
They all got to choose a book from our Book Fair, which was in school at the same time.
Well done everyone!
Who will get to GOLD?
As part of a Stoke Speaks Out Project earlier this year children across the city voted for their favourite Children's Books.
The votes were counted and a list of the top 100 was compiled.
The aim of the project is to promote "Reading for Pleasure" across the city by providing them and parents with a list children have voted for.
We would like all children in the city to read the 100 titles by the time they leave primary education.
The children at Burnwood (Y1-Y6) have now received their own copy of this list to complete.
They will read some of these books in school as part of the curriculum.
During the summer holidays some of us took part in the Library "Big Friendly Read" summer challenge.
We had to visit the local library 3 times and read 6 books. We got stickers and goodies for taking part.
Our school had the highest number of children in the city who achieved the challenge.
Ruth Smeeth, our local MP, and Emma George, from Tunstall Library, came to school to present our certificates and medals. Our parents came to watch.
A few days later on Roald Dahl Day (13th September) we went with a family member to a private viewing of the new Steven Spielberg film "The BFG" based on the book by Roald Dahl.
It was GREAT!
