World Book Day 2017

On Thursday 2nd March 2017 we celebrated World Book Day. The children were asked to come to school dressed as a character from their favourite book or a book they enjoy. The costumes this year were absolutely fantastic – probably the best we have seen! Some members of staff enjoyed dressing up too.

The teachers had the extremely difficult task of choosing one child from each class as a winner. The winners were: Theo in Class 1, Roman in Class 2, Freya in Class 3 and Will in Class 4. 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 time together in the afternoon sharing stories together, as did Classes 2 and 3. It was lovely to see the children sharing their love of reading with each other.

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 30 questions, all centred around different books. The overall scores were very high this year with the winning team scoring an impressive 28 points. Well done!

At the end of the day all the children received a £1 World Book Day token to either put towards a book of their choice, or to purchase one of the special books produced for the event.

Once again World Book Day proved to be a great success and was enjoyed by all!
