Author Visit – 12th October

Every year the organisers of Ilkley Literature Festival ask a number of schools if they would ‘host’ an author that will be at the Festival. This year ACE was approached by the orgainsers and of course we said we would love to!

We are very excited that author, Amy Wilson will be visiting us on Friday 12th October from 1pm – 3pm.

Books will be available to purchase either in advance or children can bring money in on the day.

Tony Peek Visits Year 2

Today Tony visited children in Year 2. Each class had a session with Tony who performed some funny, sad, scary and slightly rude (about farts!) poems. The children loved them!

The children also pretended to be sloths (his favourite animal), looking at rhyming words and having a go at writing their own poems.

After school Tony lead a session for children and their parents to share more poems and the opportunity for the children to share what they had been doing.

Thank you to all the parents that came along.

Wally Hunt Winner Announced!

In this morning’s assembly Miss Whiteley announced the winner of the Where’s Wally Scavenger Hunt.

Nobody found all the Wallys (there were 17 in total) but four children found 16 of them so their names were put into a ‘hat’ and the winner was………

Gurleen in Y6SK!

Congratulations to Gurleen who won a Where’s Wally tin containing 3 Where’s Wally books.

How many Wallys?!

Today school celebrated World Book Day and both children and staff were invited to come dressed as Wally or Wenda.

Wally themed activities were enjoyed, stories read and even debates were held as to whether we should change our school uniform to Whre’s Wally!
