Book Week 2020
Halfway Houses held their ‘Book Week’ from 2nd to the 6th March.
The whole school focused on the book called ‘The Dot’ by Peter H Reynolds, for a growth mind-set theme. All the children ‘made their mark’ and created dot pictures.
There was a class door competition around a book theme and these can be viewed in the gallery under ‘Book Week Displays’.
We had a bookshop in school on Tuesday, the children could use their World Book Day tokens to get a book, along with many more choices.
Tuesday and Wednesday were extreme quizzing days where years 3 to 6 tried to complete as many AR quizzes as possible; the children were very enthusiastic and loved taking on this challenge!
Thursday was World Book Day and everyone could come to school in fancy dress-the theme was come as a ‘word’, there were some amazing creations. At 3pm, the gates were opened and parents/carers could come in to school to view the decorated doors, dot pictures and spend time reading with their child whilst having hot chocolate and a biscuit.
