World Book Day

On the 6th March we celebrated World Book Day as a whole school. It was a time to celebrate authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) reading! The main aim of the day was to encourage the children to explore the pleasures of books and reading and for this to continue after the day was over.

We came together at the start of the day for an assembly where the children learnt a bit more about what world book day is, who around the world celebrates it and why they do this.

Each teacher chose a different book to focus on for the day and delivered their session to each of the coloured teams.

Yellow room – Here come the aliens! During this session the children did various activities including creating menus for and designing their own aliens.

Red room – Hairy Maclary. In this session the children created 3D pictures of characters from the book.

Green room – Flotsam. Musical instruments were used to bring this picture book to life using sounds.

Blue room – TinTin. Comic strips were investigated and created during this fun session.

We all came back together at the end of the day to share what we had been doing.

A good time was had by all!
