JK Rowling Introduces ‘The Ickabog’

Calling all budding artists! J.K. Rowling is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along. You should let your imagination run wild!

The best bit is, if you are between seven and twelve years old, your parent or guardian on your behalf can enter your drawings or paintings into the official competition being run by J.K. Rowling’s publishers, for a once in a lifetime chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, which is published in November.

To access the competition, use this link: https://www.theickabog.com/competition/

Story time!

Here at Childwall, we love nothing more than enjoying a good book and hope to instill this love of reading in our children. We would love to be able to continue sharing stories, even though we have to be apart. This link will take you to our chapters of Matilda and a range of picture books. We hope you enjoy listening to the stories as much as we enjoy telling them!

Collective Worship

As some of us return to school, we will  have an opportunity to meet together virtually to worship God. We may be a scattered school, but we are still part of the Childwall Church of England Primary School worshipping community!

Each day, there will be a different collective worship posted here for you to use at home or in school. Miss Wikeley has included plenty of music for reflection in her section of this website. 

The wonderful B-Tales are also continuing to produce collective worships for us. These will be sign-posted to use each Tuesday.
