'Tilly's Tales'! (Usbourne Books)
Thanks to one of our Plumberow parents, we have received £3500 worth of books! That is an amazing amount and everyone at Plumberow is extremely grateful! This is just a selection!
Week Ending 13th July - In this week's assembly, we celebrated all the Resilient Readers who gained 9 or more raffle tickets this half term. Well done to all the children who received a Resilient Reader certificate. Also, an overall Resilient Reader was picked from the raffle tickets gained in each class. The raffle ticket winner from each Key Stage 1 class received a certificate, book mark and a book. The raffle ticket winner from each Key Stage 2 class received a certificate and a book mark and also went to Waterstones to choose their book.
Well done to all the Resilient Reader children! We have continued to notice a significant improvement in the children's attitude towards reading at home, and they have been very enthusiastic to earn the raffle tickets!
Drama/Music Challenge Day at Greensward!
'Selected children from the four local schools (Plumberow, Hockley, Westerings & Ashingdon) came together to collaborate with Greensward on a drama/music challenge day! We worked very hard in the sweltering heat to learn songs, choreography and acting scenes from the musical 'Oliver!', to put on a performance to the parents at the end of the day.
We spent the first part of the morning getting to know each other and then got down to business! We learnt lots in a few short hours and were very proud of what the children had achieved - well done to everyone!'

National Young Writers' Awards - 2018!
To launch this exciting event, a representative from 'Explore Learning' visited the KS2 assembly to explain how someone could win a trip to Disneyland Paris plus £500 worth of books for school! The stories and the entries for the competition will be completed in school.
Plumberow were visited by The Resilient Reader!! Following a Parents' Meeting, KS1 and KS2 pupils attended fun filled assemblies! There were also lots of reading based activities happening in classrooms, lots of book sharing and some absolutely FANTASTIC costumes! Everyone had a great day (including the staff!!) Thank you for your continued support in making Powerful Learners of the pupils at Plumberow!
