Authors of the Term 2022-2023

Autumn 1

Our Author of the term is the fantastic Joseph Coelho! As we mentioned in a letter in the summer term, Joseph is the new Waterstone's Children's laureate.

We will be sharing his exciting poetry and stories with your children as part of our class daily story times and in some of our assemblies! We kicked off our Autumn Term with a ‘whole school book’ and chose ‘My Beautiful Voice’. All the children in school have read and discussed this book and have produced some beautiful artwork thinking all about the important messages of perseverance, friendship, respect and encouragement; all of which tie in with our own school values. You can see our fabulous artwork in a magnificent whole school display outside Mr Riddlinton’s office. Please check your Parent Pay letter to see what books we will be sharing in school. Perhaps you'd also like to share some of these, as well as Joseph's online video clips of him reading his poetry, at home. 

Autumn 2

Reading Club all thoroughly enjoyed reading and sharing some of Rachel Bright's fantastic books. No matter what book they had been reading they all gave them a 10/10 for enjoyment. They also managed to spot how the stories demonstrate our values of caring, friendship, forgiveness and respect! They were having so much fun, we were late going home!
