My BookBlog in Years 2-6

'My BB' is a fantastic online resource to encourage children to read for pleasure. Our children are supported to choose one of our brand new books at their level using the blurbs, book trailers and reviews of other children. My BB supports the children through the book, enabling them to complete blogs, quizzes and collect jokes and cards. Every child from Y2 upwards has their own password and can log on at home through the link below.

Author Visit

Local author, Simon Adepetun, visited our school to talk to our Key Stage 2 classes and share his journey to get his book, The Bee Hive, published. He inspired our children to follow their dreams, be resilient and not to give up on their passions.
