On 3rd March, we had a brilliant time celebrating World Book Day on its 25th Anniversary!
The children (and staff!) all came to school dressed as an interesting word. Everyone looked fantastic and all the children represented a huge, diverse range of words. I think it’s safe to say we all learnt a few new words to add to our vocabulary bank on the day! A huge thank you to all the parents for their efforts in helping their children dress so brilliantly.
We had a little competition for the outfits and the deserving winners all received an extra World Book Day book token.
During the day, we had lots of interesting book and vocabulary-related activities going on. The children all brought in their favourite book from home which they had the opportunity to share with their peers. We had DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) going on throughout the day where, on hearing a special bell, everyone would stop whatever they were doing, pick up their book and just enjoy reading for a few minutes. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed doing this, including all the staff!
As well as this, lots of the children participated in live workshops and Author / Illustrator online academies and produced some super work from these. There was storytelling going on throughout the day in classes too.
We really enjoyed celebrating this fantastic day and we feel that our love of reading has now grown even more! Please check out our photos of the outfits and some of the activities that were going on during the day.
