London Trip!, by Miss Lee

Date: 18th May 2018 @ 4:09pm

Thank you to everyone who applied to the London trip. We recieved 60 applications! It was so incredibly hard to choose the final 15. We appreciate everyone's amazing effort!

Well done to those who got a place. It was a very close call! We look forward to our trip. 

A week before the trip, we will schedule in a lunch time meeting for the children so you can ask any questions that you may have. 

From Miss Lee, Mrs Richardson and Mrs Hilton

Enjoying the Weather!, by Miss Lee

The weather has been so wonderful the past few weeks! We have been extremely lucky! So we decided to do our spelling practise outside! It's great to make the most out of the outdoor learning space and the wooden benches and outdoor whiteboard was great for our spelling practise!

This week in Art Attack club we looked at Edvard Munch's famous painitng, 'The Scream'. The children used watercolours, ink and photography to create their own versions. The results were very effective. Can you name any other famous paintings we could try our own versions of?

Author Visit, by Miss Currie

Damian Harvey

Damian lives in North Wales with his wife Vicky. He has written over 80 children's books and has visited hundreds of schools and libraries in Great Britain and abroad to share his love of reading and writing.

Last week we were lucky enough to welcome the author, Damian Harvey, to Moss Park Juniors over two days. Damian intrigued the children with an assembly, sharing one of his stories using some unusual props; a shoe, a jumper and even a child!

He then spent the remainder of his time visiting each class to complete a creative writing session. Damian and the classes created a unique character based on the childrens' ideas and then they began to build up a story plan. By the end of the session the children had planned out the story and decided on a strong opening.

The sessions proved highly popular and Damian was able to get the best out of the children by crafting their elaborate ideas into a well organised plan.

Thanks Damian!



Our Librarians, by Miss Currie

Date: 22nd Feb 2018 @ 4:11pm

With there only being one week until World Book Day, we thought we'd introduce you to our amazingly talented librarians. As well as running a weekly book club, they also enjoy renewing book displays, helping children choose interesting books and help out in any way possible.

Here they are (in no particular order);

'Hi I am Sylvie. I have recently enjoyed reading the whole collection of Percy Jackson books; they are full of adventure. I recommend them to Year 4 and above.

''My name is Dilkaran. My favourite quote is, 'Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are.'

'My name is Zainab and I am a librarian. My all time favourite author is Roald Dahl, he is the world's number one story writer.'

'Hi, my name is Natasha. I really enjoy the series of books from Chris Colfer called, The Land of Stories. However, i do still enjoy reading the Gruffalo to younger children during story time.'

'I am Zara and my favourite author is Cath Cassidy. The book I am reading at the minute, Cherry Crush, is excellent; I give it 8/10.'

'Hi, my name is Hafsah and I love being a librarian. My favourite author is David Walliams and I am currently reading his book, Awful Aunty.'
