Bosco Book Week
Focus - Beatrix Potter
Monday 27th February 2017- Friday 3rd March 2017
Our annual Bosco Book Week focused on celebrating the life and works of Beatrix Potter. The 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter was celebrated in 2017.
To launch our celebrations we began each day with an assembly giving a brief biography of Beatrix Potter and reading for pleasure. This assembly inspired our KS3 students and they were keen to learn more about this inspirational woman whose legacy has inspired generations and preserved an iconic place of natural beauty in England – The Lake District.
Students across KS3 enjoyed cross-curricular literacy lessons with a focus on reading. Students enjoyed the following lessons:
Throughout the week during lunch-time in the LRC we had a steady stream of over 100 students who wrote about their hopes and dreams for the future and their special place. They also read a range of non-fiction articles about Beatrix Potter’s life and work.There was also a numeracy activity converting the cost of Beatrix Potter’s books from pre-decimal currency to modern day currency.
To celebrate world book day, Miss Newton and Miss Strode hosted a World Book Day quiz in the LRC to complete our celebrations. Students took away a wider reading list and websites to further their studies on this inspirational and fascinating author,illustrator, scientist and conservationist.
