English CAN be exciting!


Here at Sawley Junior School, we aim to enthuse children to become fabulous readers and writers. This page will celebrate the ways in which we approach English across the curriculum. 


Author Week 2017

wk. beg. 20.2.17

This week, we launched into our much anticipated Book/Author Week! The week  included a variety of fun activities for each and every child to get involved in. 


Here are just SOME of the exciting things we've done:

  • Author visits;
  • Potato Head Challenge day;
  • Carousel Book day;
  • Mystery Reader;
  • Reading buddy swaps;
  • Creative cooking classes; 
  • Dressed as our favourite characters/authors.


Alongside these activities, there were many opportunities to get involved with a book and become incredible authors!
