It’s Book Week at BSM!

Yes, it’s that time of the year when we have a whole week of celebrating books at BSM! Thank you, Mrs Griffiths, for making our classroom look so inviting with the cover from one of my favourite books, ‘The Cat in the Hat’ by Dr Seuss.

The Cat in the Hat

We’ve been doing some shared reading with children from the younger years this week.  Nursery paid a visit to us in our classroom and we went to Year 1 to read to them in theirs.  We all agreed that sharing a book is a great way to make new friends and enjoy a good story at the same time!


One of Mrs Ower’s favourite children’s books is called Silverwing and is by Kenneth Oppel.  It’s a really exciting adventure story whose main character is a Silverwing bat.  He gets lost on a long journey and the book is all about how he finds his way back to his family.   Mrs Ower read it to her daughter when she was in Year 3 and they both enjoyed it so much that they read the other two books in the series, too.

What’s your favourite book?  What’s it about?  Why do you like it so much?

Parents & Carers, we’d love to hear about your favourite children’s book, too!
