World Book Day 2020
The school was transformed into 'Wonderland' for World Book Day this year, as we joined together with a theme based on Alice in Wonderland.
The children arrived in school to find a transformed entrance hall through which they walked to get to our reading breakfast. A huge thank you to all parents who joined us to read books, eat toast and have a quick drink.
Once parents had left, we joined together to share an abridged version of Alice in Wonderland before returning to our classrooms for activities.
Aqua class spent the day creating the food for a very special tea party at the end of the day, as well as exploring character descriptions. Meanwhile, Teal and Cobalt classes spent the morning exploring how to play croquet (but focussing on the correct rules, rather than the peculiar ones that the Queen of Hearts uses!) and learning about Alice in Wonderland in French - bringing characters to life through ICT to speak in French!
During the afternoon there were more opportunities to read and write related to ALice in Wonderland, before we all joined together for shared stories and our Mad Hatter's Tea Party.
A huge thank you to Mrs Gould for organising the day, and to all the staff who helped create the entrance hall and designed different activities. Thank you also to Mrs Edward, one of our governors, and to various houses at Oakham School, who lent us their croquet sets!
