World Book Day

This year we celebrated World Book Day on Friday 9th March due to the adverse weather conditions.

World Book Day Dress Up was a roaring success with all children and staff dressing up as their favourite book characters. It was a chance for creativity to shine and many costumes were home-made.

We had a costume parade as part of our World Book Day Assembly and every child received a World Book Day Token which they could use to get a special World Book Day Book from the Book Fair.

The child with the best costume from each class was awarded a golden ticket to be exchanged for a book of their choice. They were all so brilliant so it was hard to choose.

Congratulations to the following golden ticket winners: Diego, Fryderyk, Joe, Evie, Dominic, Isabella-Mia, Ella-Grace, Reece, William, Anna, Celino, Frankie, Maisha, Nina, Leo, and Georgine.

Share A Story was the theme of this year’s World Book Day and the children were encouraged throughout the day to share a story anytime and anywhere. Special stickers were given to the children as a reward.

Nursery and Reception classes visited Years 5 and 6 classes where they shared stories with their buddies.

We invited one of our local bookshops, Pickled Pepper Books, to arrange a Book Fair for the week and we transformed our library into a mini-bookshop with a fantastic selection of children’s books. We also had the wonderful World Book Day books for which the children could exchange their World Book Day Tokens; a book for every child.

Together we raised more than £700 and earned credit to use on new books for our school library. We will be able to choose from the latest releases so that we keep up-to-date with children’s books.

Thank you to everyone for helping to make it such a fantastic day!
