Patron of Reading visits…

Today the author John Fardell (our Patron of Reading) came into school to make up stories with some of the pupils using his well-known character Manfred the Baddie.

James’s story had boys with propeller heads travelling to the moon to eat cheese! There were aliens, robots and UFO’s – video to follow shortly……

Chase had made an amazing Liar for Manfred with many inventions such as a secret spy hole and a place to store his loot!

Lewis designed a new car for Manfred to rob a bank – it had propellers, booster rockets and many other inventions.

Robert drew some fantastic illustrations for his story that involved an evil cake and a boy called Tom.

Thank you very much John and what

marvellous inventions and stories you created boys.

Book Creativity

Books, books, books.

Here at Rowanfield, we love books.

In the most recent post, we told you we’re having a readathon so i’m going to start interviewing people.

Let’s get started!

Myself (Ivy) “books give me nothing but joy and inspiration!”

Lucy said “I enjoy reading books it helps me feel relaxed”

Ms. Mellors “I love reading books, it’s soothing and gives me a good feeling. You also learn. The more you read, the more you learn.”

Debbie said “it’s fun to read”

Well, we’ll see you soon.

My Readathon

Read for Good is a charity who raise money for books for children in hospital. We are raising money to give the charity money for books. If we raise money they can give the children in hospital books.

I think this is a good idea so children in hospital can read.

I have started my readathon by reading signs, books, comics and posters.
