Friday, Week 1

Modelled Reading
Introducing our first class novel for the year…


Darkness had come to the town. Strange things were happening in the dead of night. Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find… a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow.
Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it…?

The jaw-achingly funny, Number One bestselling novel from David Walliam. Make your appointment if you dare…

We read the first chapter today and heard about ‘Alfie’, the boy with rotten yellow and brown teeth. His last visit to the dentist was when he was 6 years old, when he endured the horrible experience of having the wrong tooth forcefully removed. Ouch! We can’t wait to read more next week….


Students introduced the teachers to a funky mindfulness website called Weave Silk, which allows you to create some beautiful and colourful designs.

Have-a-go, it is very mesmerising!!!
