World Book Day

We have been celebrating World Book Day and enjoying how magical books can be.

Now in its 16th year, World Book Day aims to ensure that as many children as possible explore the pleasures of books and reading.

To celebrate the day, children will receive a World Book Day £1 Book Token which can be exchanged for one of eight specially published books including ‘Alfie’s Shop’ by Shirley Hughes, ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance: Colouring and Puzzle Fun’ by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees, Francesca Simon’s ‘Horrid Henry’s Guide to Perfect Parents’ and ‘Weird World of Wonders: Funny Inventions’ by TV’s Tony Robinson.

Our learners have been participating in lots of special activities and taking part in the joy of books and all the fun that can be experienced through them.

One class in lower school went on their very own bear hunt, inspired by Michael Rosen’s book ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.’ Learners explored around the playground and the sensory trail, until they found the elusive bear.

Other students have been reading to each other, dressing up as characters, acting out our favourite parts of stories, watching films of famous books, going to bookshops to choose our own books, visiting the library, … and even more…
