                                                       Shadowing the Kate Greenaway shortlist.................

 

It has been all about the pictures in the library this recently- we have been holding school-wide shadowing lessons of the Kate Greenaway Medal shortlist.
Pupils 'shadowed' the judging process for best illustrations in a children's book and looked at the links to Amnesty International and Human Rights.

We were very lucky to have the 8 beautiful books in our library for pupils to review & we all VOTED for our favorite illustrations...

Our winner was Wild Animals of the North.

 

We had a special day of activities in the library with activities linked to the shortlisted books.

Some children in year four had the fantastic opportunity to go and see the famous author Jacqueline Wilson. They loved listening to her speak and buying signed copies of her books. Two competition winners had the chance to go and get their books personally signed by Jacqueline Wilson.

Our St Anne's Must Read Book Club read all of the six 'Tower Hamlets Must Read' shortlisted books and were fortunate enough to be able to attend the finale of the award in Canary Wharf.  They successfully read a new book each week and debated it with their group. They chose their favourites and produced these great vlogs, check them out here:

Sam Gayton 

We were lucky enough to have the author Sam Gayton - known for novels such as Hercufleas & The Snow Merchant - visit our school and Library!

During Sam's visit he did an exciting interactive assembly with KS1 & KS2 getting the children to give input to his new book Lillput which is a follow on from Gullivers Travels.

Sam also did workshops with Year 5 and 6 showing them ways to create characters and story openings, as well as joining the Book Club at the end of the day to give a Q+A Session, along with book signing.

Thanks for coming in Sam! 

Excellence, together with God as our guide
