‘World Book Day’ took place on Thursday 3rd March and the event was celebrated in school with a whole-school focus on reading. Children took part in reading themed activities to help encourage an enjoyment of reading, for example older pupils being paired up with younger pupils to read fiction stories. Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 classes also took part in literacy workshops with a visiting drama company, ‘Perform World.’
All pupils had the opportunity to create costumes and dress up as their favourite book characters. Classes celebrated their work and costumes at a ‘World Book Day’ assembly and a book prize was awarded to a pupil in each class. Thank you to both our Literacy Leaders in school, Mr Berridge and Miss Nouvet, for all their work organising World Book Day.
