20 books 2017📚📚📚


This year, year 5 and 6 are voting on 20 new books for the year,  they will see which are the best five, then the best three and then they will decide on the best book of 2017. This is a good opportunity to get the children reading. A lady from a local library came and showed year 5 and 6 the  20 new books. This happens every year at Overdale Junior School. The books will be arriving from the 6th November 2017 till the 14th November. We don’t know what will happen when we’ve decided on the best book of the year yet but we will find out soon. There are scary books, funny books, weird books and even comics.

The battle of the bands this time was a class against another class. One of them was 5e against 3c. Sadly, 5e lost. But the others were:

3em against 3s= 3em won

4n against 4t= 4t won

5wb against 4s= 5wb won

6w against 5o= 5o won

4cdl against 6e= 6e won

And 6a against 5ps= 6a won.

Mr Ellis we are very fortunate to be able to have TTROCKSTARS so I hope in the future we will do more battle of the bands soon and I was very happy about how many people took part in Mati and Lola 5e

Charity day!!!!!!!!!😊


On Friday the 13 of October there will be an event where children where their own clothes and have to bring in a (new) pound. The money will go to a country in the Carrabian called Barbuda, it was destroyed by HURRICANE IRMA!! In year 5 there is a boy named Aiden T and some of his family lives there. With the money they will spend it towards new schools and new buildings.

Parents evening


All of the children are looking forwards to parents evening (not.) It will take place on Tuesday or Wednesday, from times 3:30 to 7:30. The parents evening will take up to 10 minutes, so not a long wait! When the torture is over, there will be a bookstore in the hall for you and your child to look around. Also in the healthy hut there will be bobbing!
