World Book Day

What a fantastic time we had on World Book Day!


The children all looked great in their costumes and it was lovely to see such a wide range of costumes, especially those who had been inventive creating costumes with what they had at home. 


We started the day with a reading breakfast. It was lovely to be joined by so many parents and grandparents to share a book, some toast and a drink. There was a real buzz of enjoyment about the reading that was taking place. 


Once the children were back in their classrooms, there were many different book day activities: from writing a story, to writing about favourite books and creating new book covers. Throughout the day, teachers swapped classes and shared different stories with the children. 


In assembly we admired everyone's costumes and learnt a valuable lesson from the latest Mary Poppins film. Mrs Davis, dressed as Mary Poppins, introduced a clip with a song 'the cover is not the book', about how we should open a book to find out about the story, not just dismiss it if we don't like the cover.


A huge thank you to Mrs Gould for organising the day and to parents for making costumes.
