2016 World Book Day

On 3rd March 2016 we celebrated World Book Day. The children were asked to come to school dressed as a character from a book they enjoy and the costumes were absolutely fantastic. The teachers had the extremely difficult task of choosing one child from each class as a winner, although Logan, from Class 1, won for his Chicken Licken costume; Aimee, from Class 2, won for her The Stupid Wolf costume; Evan, from Class 3, won for his Cat in the Hat costume; and finally Hannah, from Class 4, won for her Queen of Hearts costume. All four winners received a book voucher for their effort – well done!

The children were also encouraged to bring in their favourite books to share. Classes 1 and 4 spent some time together in the afternoon sharing stories together, as did Classes 2 and 3.

The children in KS2 were placed into mixed aged teams to participate in a book quiz to test their knowledge of a range of books. The children were then asked 25 questions, all centred around different books. The results were extremely close, with only one point separating first and second place. The winning team (The Amazing Potato Glasses People) scored an impressive 22 points and were rewarded with Easter eggs for their achievement. Well done!
