World Book Day

17 Mar

World Book Day this year was on Thursday 4th March - in lockdown! However, that did not stop us from celebrating it.

Many of the teachers and teaching assistants recorded themselves reading books which all the children had access to listening to. Stories ranged from scary ghost stories for upper KS2 to The Tiger Who Came To Tea. A lot of the older children said they enjoyed listening to some of their favourite picture books from when they were in KS1!

Every class also had some of their English lessons that week based around the book Journey by Aaron Becker. It is a beautiful wordless book that shows a child with a magical crayon creating her own adventures in different worlds.

The children all enjoyed thinking about where they would go if they had their own magic crayon and what worlds they would create.

All the children came up with lots of good ideas and had fun creating their own magical worlds.
