English Ambassadors 📚

English Ambassadors 2022/23

 

We are looking to add new members from Year 4 to our amazing team of English Ambassadors - watch this space for updates!

 

Our library is looking fantastic and we have been lucky enough to add some new books over the summer.

 

                                      

 

 

A busy few months for the English Ambassadors!

 

We organised a book mark competition at Christmas and the winners had their design printed for the whole school.

 

Helped organise the poetry competition by creating posters to advertise it and we gave out certificates to the winners in assembly.

 

We have set-up a “broken book box” in the library, this is there for children to put in any books which need repairing or replacing.

 

We check the library daily to make sure it is being looked after by others.  We try to group books by interest within the book levels, this makes it easier for people to find books that they enjoy.

 

We have also spoken to the whole school in assembly about looking after the library and asked what we can do to help people find books that they enjoy.

What we plan to do next:

  • Speak to classes to find out what books they would like to see more of in the library.  This could be new authors or more books in a certain level/genre.
  • Display some posters around the school to encourage reading.
  • Look at ways to improve the look of the library.
  • Discuss ideas about a book club/reading session in the library.

How do I apply? During the first Autumn term, Mrs Bell explains in a whole school assembly the role of an English Ambassador and children from Years 4 and 5 can apply. 

 

The role involves:

 

- Holding Reading related assemblies

- Organising and delivering competitions within school

- Organising and delivering parent reading sessions/book fair/world book week/poetry competition

- KS2 Book clubs

-  Tidying the library

Today we had a visit from our author - Anne Stairmand. She started the day with an assembly to the whole school and then went on to work with the Key Stage Two classes doing workshops. Lots of fun was had by all. 

The books have arrived! We are ready to start our book club and are very excited.

Autumn Pupil Voice Report - Reading

Morton Bookworms - We have formed the school's first book club and we are so excited. We met together today for the first time to decide what our first book would be. After voting we managed to whittle it down to our final two choices and after a close vote the final choice was... George's Marvellous Medicine. We can't wait to start reading this book together in the spring.

Lots of children applied to be English Ambassadors for this academic year and these children were selected based on the amount of ideas they submitted for the role. We look forward to seeing them develop their ideas over the coming year. Congratulations

Christmas Competition Winners

 

Over the Christmas period we held a competition and in KS1 the children had to create a Christmas scene and label it and in KS2 the children had to create a Christmas Character and write a character description about it. 

 

We were overwhelmed with how many children from both Key Stages entered and it was very difficult choosing our winners. We had first, second and third places in both Key Stages. Well done and thank you to everybody who entered.

 

Below are our winners from KS1 and KS2.

 

 

We are the English Ambassadors in school. Our team have many different jobs around school. 

 

Some of the things we do:

 

  • Promote a love of reading by having a book review display to help children choose books they might like to read.
  • Hold competitions throughout the year - two so far this year.
  • Lead assemblies to remind everyone how to care for the library.
  • Work in the library helping to keep it neat and tidy.
The Governors wrote a letter of thanks to last year's English Ambassador team to thank them for the hard work they put in to different events over the last year.
