World Book Day 2017

From the moment I opened the door at 8.55am this morning, I knew that we were going to have a wonderful day. I was not wrong. Standing in front of the assembled school it was so lovely to see how everyone – children, staff and adults – had made such a superb effort to all come as their favourite book character to celebrate World Book Day. With everyone from Where’s Wally to Goldilocks and The Boy in the Dress to Harry Potter, all types of books and stories were represented and it demonstrated what a love of reading our school has.

In class the fun continued throughout the day, with the staff all having planned some fantastic learning activities for the children, all centered around reading and books. Furthermore, a whole school reading session, with older children pairing with younger children made the day even more special and a special announcement from Mrs Hannam of an extreme reading award has now got everyone thinking how best to create that perfect photo of themselves reading!

In all it was another day to be proud of what we have at our school and a perfect way to mark the occasion. Here are some photos of the fun we had:
