World Book Day
The whole school enjoyed celebrating World Book Day.
The day started with a whole school assembly during which Mrs Hiley talked to the children about the importance of sharing stories. We also had a visit from Dan Watford who has recently published his first book called ‘Becky Bigteeth’. He talked to the children about how his love of reading led him to became an author.
After the assembly, the children had the choice of which story they would like to hear read to them, another great way of hearing something new or revisiting an old favourite. We were delighted that the Pre-School children could join us for a story. They enjoyed listening to Mrs Hiley’s book ‘Giraffe’s Can’t Dance’.
Throughout the rest of the day the children took part in a wide range of activities to develop a love of reading including creating alternative front covers, writing blurbs, taking part in drama activities, designing bookmarks and paired reading.
All staff and children looked amazing dressed up as their favourite book character but Jack in Y1 definitely stole the show with his homemade Thomas the Tank Engine costume!
It was great to see so many parents in school sharing a story with their child/ren and the Book Sale after school was a huge success.
