In Wednesday’s library sessions, Years 5 and 6 finished reading The Lion Who Stole My Arm by Nicola Davies. What a book! I thought the ending was perfect and especially appreciated the epilogue. What did you think?
If you want to re-read chapter 1, check this out.
Years 5 and 6 are reading The Lion Who Stole My Arm by Nicola Davies in their library sessions. It is such an exciting read! Pedru hasn’t yet found his lion, although he does now know his name. What do you think Pedru will do when he finally meets Anjani, his lion, face-to-face?

Thank you again to everyone who donated cakes, attended, and donated money during our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon on Friday. The money has been counted and we raised £139.43! Well done to everyone!
On Friday 30 September, we will host a Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. This will take place straight after school in the library. Please come by to enjoy some tasty treats, chat with friends, and enjoy the new library.
To make the most of this annual fundraising event, we are asking for donations of baked goods. All items should be brought into school on Friday morning before school. These will be stored in the library.
Thank you in advance for any help!
The summer reading challenge has started! If you haven’t registered already, go to your local library (Maple Cross’ closest library is Rickmansworth Library) and sign up for the fun. You can read paper books or ebooks borrowed from the library; the important thing is to read six books.
I heard a rumour that the class in September with the most participants in the summer reading challenge may be recognised with some sort of award…
Have a great summer of reading!

In today’s assembly we talked about libraries and how important they to our learning. National Libraries Day on Saturday 6 February gives us all a chance to show how much we value our public libraries. Maple Cross’ closest library is Rickmansworth Library and they are having a special Saturday Stories event at 11:00AM. It’s open to everyone!
If you don’t yet have a library card in Hertfordshire, apply for one now. You don’t want to miss out on all this reading.
