Events at Merton Bank
Marks, get set, go Mrs Pickford!
Mrs Pickford will be running the London Marathon in a few weeks and to support her we completed sponsored events in each class, to raise money for her chosen charity 'Childhood first'. Check out our Year 3 and year 6 class completing their challenges below! Year 3 had to complete in a train lap, they couldn't break the human chain whilst they completed their laps and Year 6 had to do a 'skipathon'! Everyone worked really hard, good luck Mrs Pickford!
As part of celebrating a love of reading across school, we held a book cafe. Children and parents could attend after school and enjoy a book, a cup of tea and treats in our library. Mrs Clark set up some fun challenges too; book hunts, guess the teachers favourite book and book quizzes! Thanks to everyone who attended it was a great success!
Drop everything and read!
Mrs Clark organised another enjoyable reading event. Mrs Clark enjoys reading so much she wanted to catch everyone dropping everything and enjoying a good book when they heard 5 bells ringing! Year 3 even dropped their tennis rackets and enjoyed a book, Miss Newby joined in reading too! We all love reading at Merton Bank!
World Book Day
This year our theme was poetry and rhyme and our costumes had to reflect this. We had little Miss Muffet, Hickory Dickory clock and Humpty dumpty just to name a few! To celebrate and promote a love of reading each class did lots of activities throughout the week looking at poetry. Each class then performed a poem to the whole school! Key stage one and two did tricky book quizzes and we had a book cafe open all week to parents. We had a super week and we all love reading!
