On Thursday evening (26th October) fifteen children from KS2 who had been participating in the Leeds Book Awards attended the Presentation Evening. They ‘Dressed to Impress’ wearing glitter and sequins, suits with bow ties and jackets.
There were photo booth opportunities complete with hats, masks and feather boas which the children loved and books to buy.
Excitement filled the air as the children eagerly waited for the names of the winning authors to be announced. Followed by even more excitement as the children were able to meet the authors and have their newly purchased books signed or their Leeds Book Awards programmes.
They loved every minute of it and were sad when the evening came to an end.

As part of our National Poetry Day (weeklong) celebrations many classes joined the creators of The Star Whale for a very special end to the week.
Year 5S also shared what they had been doing to celebrate.
This week during library sessions children have been listening, reading and sharing poems. Older children in KS2 also took part in the Poetry Trail that Miss Whiteley made. The feedback of which has been very positive with many children stating that they really enjoyed the different types of poems and activities.
This week the group have been getting creative. In tow groups they have been writing their own scripts, thinking about stage directions and props.
The scripts they are writing are loosely based on one of the books ‘Loki: A Bad God’s Guide to Being Good and their own Gods and characters that they created in their stories earlier in the term.
