Junior World Book Week

Normanhurst School Celebrated World Book Week and this year’s theme of ‘Share a Story’.  The focus on sharing a favourite story or tale with friends and loved ones really came through as pupils enjoyed participating in activities throughout a very busy week for them.  1S pupils enjoyed having their friends in Year 5 read to them in different languages, they were read to in Bulgarian, Polish, Chinese, Estonian, and Spanish.  They even had a parent come in to visit and end the week with a story read to them in her mother tongue which is also Spanish.

Many pupils from across the Junior School entered the Book Week competition of writing a short story.  The winner will receive a £5 book token and 25 house points!!  The winners will be announced in the upcoming junior assembly. Other Book Week activities included making bookmarks, designing the cover of books and black out story writing.
