Everybody Worries is Jon Burgerman’s brand new picture book designed to support children who may be feeling worried about Coronavirus and in particular the everyday changes to their lifestyle that it has brought about.

With colourful characters and rhyming text, this original picture book from the author of Everybody Has a Body is designed to reassure young children that their worries are valid and also includes practical ways to help them to process and articulate their emotions

 

Author Jon Burgerman commented, “I decided to write a book about worry and stress and how normal it is and how we can try and mitigate it. I think we might not acknowledge that small children worry as much as they do. Without a means of expressing their anxieties, the stress can manifest and have adverse effects.

It’s important to talk openly about what is going on and that the feelings we’re experiencing are being felt by a lot of people, and that by sharing and caring for each other we can try and make it a little better.”

 

The book is offered free of charge and can be read on screen via the Oxford Owl website.

Story Writing Competition

Submitted by headteacher on Monday, February 10, 2020 - 23:35

Before Christmas, the children were given the opportunity to enter a Christmas Story Writing Competition run by Cranbrook Rotary Club. We were one of 22 schools in the area that entered stories. Stories were chosen from each year group across the 22 schools and prizes were given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The judges had trouble choosing between some stories and a new category of Highly Commended was created. In our celebration assembly, Norman Freestone came to award the children who had been chosen with book tokens.

Well done to all children who took the time to write and enter their stories and congratulations to the following children who won a prize:
Year 6 Archie 2nd prize, Tommy 3rd
Year 5 Sevvie Highly Commended
Year 4 Sophie 2nd prize
Year 2 Ella 3rd prize

Don't forget to get writing for the Radio 2 500 word story competition!
