Reading Week Gallery


During reading/poetry week the nursery children have been focussing on rhymes and rhyming stories. They enjoyed listening to Superworm, making their own ‘Superworm’ and learning to sing ‘There’s a Worm at the Bottom of the Garden’. They also performed ‘Incy Wincy Spider’ and made their own spider webs. The children had a visit from St Gilbert’s very own Humpty Dumpty which was a wonderful surprise. We were also lucky enough to have three mystery readers who read the most wonderful rhyming stories. It has been such an enjoyable learning week!


we have had such a wonderful week celebrating reading week.  Our focus for the week was ‘colours’. We listened to ‘What is Pink?’ By Christina Rossetti then made up our own colour poems. We thought about colours of the rainbow and sang some colour songs and we also thought about our favourite books and wrote book reviews. We really enjoyed spending time reading with our y6 buddies and we loved our parent mystery readers!

Year 2

Year 2 have had a fabulous 'Reading Week!' We have read lots of new books, including lots of poetry. We have written our own poems. Go to the Video Resource Centre to hear us reading some of them. We all learned a poem called 'I think mice are rather nice' by Rose Fyleman. You can see us performing it on the video. Mrs. Tyldesley also came to read some poems to us and we had a secret reader!

We have had a great week this week. We’ve read lots of poetry, wrote our own poems and performed them! For World Book Day we came in wonderful costumes based around poetry and we planned, presented a book review to recommend our favourite book to the class 😁

Year 4 had a fabulous  week learning about the different kinds of poems. For World Book Day the children not only dressed up but came with their poems to recite too. Some children even wrote their own! Have a look at the books that Year 4 children love to read.
