St. Agnes' Catholic Primary School

Act justly, love tenderly, walk humbly with your God

English Enrichment

 

As part of the Northern Children's Book Festival, Y6 were incredibly lucky to be chosen for an author session with Ghost Hunting legend and children's author Yvette Fielding. The children learned all about how to become a ghost hunter and we got to hear Yvette read a chapter of her new book: The House in the Woods. The children even got a chance to ask Yvette some questions and we learned all about her time on Blue Peter as well. She has inspired us to become Ghost Hunters!

World Book Day 2021

An amazing effort from all of the children for this year's World Book Day. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the lovely activities in class and listening to Mrs Woods read us a story. We also had so much fun designing our monsters for the ‘Monster Doughnuts’ competition.

 

 

Monster Doughnuts

We were all incredibly excited when St. Agnes’ school was chosen by the author Gianna Pollero to enter a competition to win a copy of her book ‘Monster Doughnuts’ before it is even in the shops. We all had to design a monster. We had to draw it and give it characteristics. The winner will also be mentioned in Gianna’s next book! How fantastic! Year 5 even had the amazing opportunity to chat to Gianna online. Thank you so much Gianna.

Year 4 at Gateshead Library.

Year 4 were fortunate enough to spend a morning with the fantastic Liz Million for an author and illustrators workshop. They thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a few tricks!

Year 6 Trip to The Live Theatre

Year 6 spent a lovely afternoon experiencing a creative writing workshop at Live Tales. The children showed great imagination and produced some very interesting ideas.
