This year we celebrated World Book day with a variety of activities involving Reading for Pleasure.
Year 5 led a special whole school assembly, ‘The Day the Books Quit,’ which they wrote themselves. Afterwards, parents joined us in the classroom to share stories with their children. During the day, teachers swapped classes and read stories to other year groups and the children also visited other classes to enjoy books. Other activities included: designing book covers for favourite books, creating ‘black-out poetry’ using extracts from well- known books, quizzes and writing book reviews. It was enjoyable day, with books placed at the heart of everything that we did. Our aim now is to continue to raise the profile of Reading even further at school and home. Here are some photographs.
