This World Book Day we celebrated with great enthusiasm, exploring all of our favourite characters and enjoying many stories throughout the day.
Starting the day with an assembly that included a costume parade, children showcased such a range of wonderful costumes and teachers didn’t disappoint with great gusto for Harry Potter.
World Book Day is a worldwide celebration of authors, books, illustrators and most importantly aims to promote reading for pleasure among young people.
Throughout the day pupils were encouraged to share their thoughts and opinions with their class and explain what makes their chosen book a firm favourite. Ellie in year 5 shared her book The Lost Twin part of the Scarlet and Ivy series by Sophie Cleverly explaining “They are really interesting and fun books to read and they just keep you guessing”.
Our book tasting activity also gave children the opportunity to listen to stories that they may not have heard before and immerse themselves in magical tales and intriguing narratives.
It is wonderful to see such enthusiasm for reading and the effort made by everyone to participate in a day that recognises the importance and joy of reading.
