Author Alex Bellos' visit
Alex Bellos, author of the FOOTBALL SCHOOL series of books, turned St Thomas More into a real life Football School by visiting KS2 children. Throughout the assembly, children took part in mini lessons with a football twist.
Parents be warned... your child may have preferred Football School to ordinary school!
Football School is a bestselling series that encourages reading and a curiosity about the world through football. The first Football School book was runner up in Blue Peter’s book of the year award!
We are delighted to now have a set of Football School books in our school library for all children to enjoy.
A huge thank you to Alex Bellos for a riveting afternoon of football fun!
World Book Day 2023
World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading. Our mission is to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
We celebrated World Book Day with a 'Vocabulary Dress-Up' day inspired by the book "The Word Collector" by Peter H. Reynolds. It was fantastic to see the variety of words and costumes! Each class has created their own class dictionary in which children have defined their words and found synonyms and antonyms.
Each teacher has also chosen a book to share! Children have been able to choose which book they would like to enjoy before breaktime each day.
