World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day the whole week this year. Throughout the week children took part in many fun activities that really promoted a love for books not just for pleasure but for purpose too. The whole school including the staff got dressed up in their favourite book characters on the Thursday 3rd March, World Book Day, and everyone looked great! 

This year we invited our parents/carers to come into school and share a book with the children. We had an overwhelming response and were really pleased to see so many of our parents/carers sign up!  We are really grateful to everyone who came, thank you.

During the week children read not only with their classmates but with children in different classes. They were given an opportunity to share and read various books.  The teachers across the school also swapped classrooms to read and share their favourite book with other children.

We had a special World Book Day Assembly; all our teachers got together and the children were asked to guess what book character they were dressed up as.  Children had to get their thinking caps on while they tried to remember the name of so many children's books.  The teachers and the children had lots of fun and a good time was had by all.
