07 Mar World Book Day
Our children are such great enthusiastic spellers! They all brought in their favourite books to share. This was a fabulously inclusive challenge with everyone choosing a word that was ‘just right’ for them.
- Gruffalo Class could spell ‘rabbit’, ‘hurricane’, ‘gopher’, ‘crocodile‘ and ‘festival’ amongst many other words.
- Elmer Class challenged Mrs Muxworthy and Mrs Philips to spell ‘cousins’, ‘investigated’, ‘inseparable’ and ‘extraordinarily’!
- Paddington Class had ‘amphitheatre’, ‘succulent’, ‘invincibility’ and ‘aurora borealis’. (I spelt this right but did just Google it to check…well done Lexi!)
- Wild Things had ‘unofficial’, ’embroider’ and ‘hieroglyphics’ (which I just had to spell check, so Jack, you beat the teacher!)
- The BFGs attempted to fox Mrs.Slade with ‘disillusionment’ and ‘hallucinating‘ but Mrs Morgan trumped them all with ‘blatherskite‘ (ask your child to look it up!).
This was a great day and put words, their meaning and spelling, at the centre of our conversations. I was really bowled-over with the children’s ability to memorise spellings so this would be a great activity to continue on a regular basis.
I was impressed, overwhelmed and dazzled to see the children so absorbed, engrossed and fascinated by spelling!
Thank you, Mrs Muxworthy.
