World Book Day 2018
Due to the adverse weather conditions and subsequent school closure we celebrated World Book Day on Monday 5th March 2018.
The children were invited to come to school wearing a costume that reflected a character from a book or story that they particularly enjoy. The children worked in new groups (mixed ages/classes). They had fun listening to and participating in exciting activities linked to the following stories:
- Snow White
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Princess and the Pea
- Hansel and Gretel
- The Frog Prince
In the afternoon we held a special World Book Day assembly. We wanted to get the children excited about books and inspire a love of reading. It was an opportunity for staff and children to share their favourite authors and books. The whole school were able to see the exciting things that the children had been doing and to see the amazing array of costumes.
The day culminated in parents/carers coming into school to share a book with a small group of children. A huge thank you to all those parents, grandparents and carers who were able to participate - the children really enjoyed it.
Photos will be posted shortly.
