World Book Day – take a read on the wild side

This year our school’s theme was: Wild About Reading! Just take a look at all the wild animals that arrived into school today.  The children shared their information fact-file about their chosen animal and their ‘caught in the wild’ photographs.  What a lot of  wild and wacky places to be caught reading.

Our special visitor was from our local library and she shared a story about jungle animals and answered the children’s questions about her job.  

Keep on reading!

Amazing Animals!

Here we are in our fabulous WBD animal costumes. Everyone shared their factfile in literacy this morning. Thank you to  our families for their support in helping the children to do their WBD task.

World Book Day

We loved World Book Day! It was fantastic to see the amount of effort everyone had made to dress as a book character. Some pupils prepared speeches about how their chosen character fitted in with our School’s values – clearly, a lot of thought had gone in to costumes. Unfortunately, many pupils had gone home early due to the snow so there are quite a few children missing from our class picture! Well done everyone! 


World Book Day

We had a brilliant day for World Book Day. What a superb effort everyone made with their costumes!

World Book day in Reception

The children were really excited to share their story book character with their friends and our special visitor from the local library. She shared an  amazing story all about a bear who wants to be a bee and lucky for us we get to take a copy home to share with our family.
