Thu 7th Mar 2019 : Wonderful World Book Day at The Mead!
The whole school is buzzing with excitement, colour and activity today as we celebrate World Book Day.
The children (and staff!) are looking absolutely fantastic in their costumes and all year groups have been enjoying a wonderful carousel of literary-themed activities based on the stories Noah's Ark for Early Years, The Wizard of Oz and The Day the Crayons Came Home for Key Stage 1 and Lost and Found for Key Stage 2.
Early Years have been making rainbow fruit kebabs, building an ark out of large blocks and painting a giant Noah's Ark flood picture.
Year 1 have been visiting the Emerald City and putting on their imaginary red sparkly Dorothy shoes to create their own wishlists.
Year 2 have been putting on their thinking caps and writing postcards to Duncan from The Day the Crayons Came Home as well as junk-modelling and creating a 'home' for the crayons.
Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been drawing pencil sketches of scenes from Lost and Found to be painted with water colours, developing their IT skills by creating a code for the story of Lost and Found, making dream jars filled with their hopes and wishes, exploring the central theme of the story, the journey of friendship, and writing haiku poems based on the illustrations in the story.
The PE department have been getting involved too, with this year's activities based on The Great Escape. The children have been put through their paces by Sergeants Leroy, Mackenzie, Marsh and Girling, taking part in fun assault courses both indoors and outside.
A huge thanks to all our pupils, parents and staff for making such a tremendous effort.
It's been a colourful, magical and inspiring day!
