So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.”
- Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Today we celebrated the national event that is 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 continued their reading celebrations 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, Marvel superheroes, Grey Heffley from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the character Gangster Granny by David Walliams.
Please also remember to continue to bring in old books for our school second-hand bookstall which will be happening on Thursday the 15th of March at 3pm.
A big thank you to parents and carers for helping children dress up as their favourite character. It was lovely to celebrate World Book Day together.
