At school today we have been discussing the appalling tragedy in Manchester with the children. We have looked at the BBC Newsround website which includes advice for children on what to do if they are worried. We have reassured children that at school and home their teachers and parents are always there to talk to them about any worries they have.

How to speak to your children.

I am sure you will join everyone at HFJS in sharing our thoughts with all the families impacted by this tragedy.

 

 

Over the Easter holidays our reading area has transformed into what is now called 'Authors Alley'. Our alley is like stepping back in time to an old shopping street with shops full of books such as 'Fiction and Sons', ' Poems R Us', 'Non Fiction Emporium' and 'Magazine World'.

Special features within the room all link in some way to either a book, author or Higham Ferrers Junior School. Hidden within the bricks are quotes from books and somewhere else on another brick is the author's name and book title to find to match up with the quote. We also have our own special 'wanted' poster which we will use to highlight new books to the children.

We are the only school around to have such a brilliant and unique reading area, my thanks to Miss Brayfield and Miss Taverner for their time planning this exciting space for all the children in school. We can't wait for you all to see Authors Alley for yourselves!
