We have had a wonderful book week working on our speaking and listening skills, with the focus being poetry and rhyme. We had Maria from Whickham library come and read some sensory stories to the younger children in school. Every child had the opportunity to go to the hall and be involved with the Bear Hunt. We had a smoke filled forest, snow and wonderful oozy mud for the pupils to explore. All the children were extremely engaged throughout the story. We had a rhyming walk around school and a talking box containing some interesting tactile objects for the children to feel and describe. The week culminated in an assembly where the children dressed as their favourite book character and shared their good work through the week. Then the Gibside Crew came to the front and performed The Gibside Rap!
