This week in Sandymere we’ve been sharing our favourite books on Zoom with each other.


On Thursday our literacy focus was inspire others to read a book, each child in Sandymere spoke about their favourite book and why. I know I was certainly inspired to read some new texts and purchase some new class readers!


Today I shared one of my favourite books called ‘Dr Xargles book of Earth Tiggers’ which is a laugh out loud book all about an Alien races take on how cats act in our homes. It was so lovely to see the children enjoying the text and laughing along together. A man called Tony Ross who illustrates a number of children’s series including the ‘little princess books’ and the Horrid Henry TV series illustrates the book is the creater of the characters in the Dr Xargle’s books. Following reading the story we all took part in a draw along session to learn how to draw Horrid Henry, it was great to see all the children taking part.


We’re really looking forward to having the children back in school on Monday and enjoying 4 fun days together before the Easter break. We have a number of exciting events such as egg decorating and egg rolling as well as learning more about the Easter story.


A reminder to send a picture of your egg creations, on the theme ‘everyday superhero’s, over to the Sandymere email address so they can be entered into the competition.


We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Miss Hume, Mrs Lloyd, Mrs Dodd and Miss Davison
