“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” [Dr Seuss]
Today we celebrated World Book Day. We started the day with a whole school assembly, which gave children a chance to hear what each class has been reading and to see what everyone was wearing. Children from year 3 shared their favourite books, authors and characters. We also read one of Mrs. Saunders favourite books, The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers. It is a beautifully illustrated book about a little girl’s imagination and curiosity about the world.
Children continued their reading in class, sharing books they had brought in from home. It was wonderful to see children and parents make such an effort and dress up as a character from one of their favourite books. Our school was filled with many Roald Dahl characters, pirates, superheroes and characters from Harry Potter.
We hope each child uses the £1 voucher that was given to them to spend on a book.
A big thank you to parents and careers for helping children dress up as their favourite character. It was lovely to celebrate World Book Day together.
