World Book Day Thursday 7th March 2024

The School staff and children celebrated world book day as a community. They began their day with’ Breakfast with a Book Character’, where they enjoyed pancakes and toast together, all kindly organized by the school’s PTA.

The school day began with everyone coming together in the school hall for a World Book Day parade; the children and staff had opportunity to share their costumes with the whole school community. It was also announced that there were golden tickets hid around the school in the most unlikely places for the children to find and if found it entitled them to free tuck from the tuck shop on Friday.

Through the course of the day the children did activities in class based around world book day, each year group had a fantastic opportunity to work with Mr Frazer a Storyteller who was kindly provided by Barrett Homes. All children really enjoyed their sessions with Mr Frazer and were really captivated by his storytelling.

In the afternoon each class created their own Door Book Cover based around a text they have been studying this academic year. At 3pm everyone came together in the school hall again to share their Door Book Cover and the class with the best door cover was announced. They will be receiving extra break. We finished the day with an episode of the Masked Reader which was created by the school staff. The children had to guess which staff member was disguising their voice behind the mask as they read the story. Everybody had a fantastic time.
