This week celebrates World Book Day and to kick start our week off and to continue our love of reading, the children were lucky enough to participate in a story-telling dance class run by an outside dance company. The children in nursery and reception danced to ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, the children in year 1 and 2 danced to ‘The Gruffalo’ and the children in year 3, 4, 5 and 6 danced to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. Our children enjoyed this so much and both their performances and laughter were lovely to see and hear!
On Thursday, we celebrated World Book Day. It was fantastic to see all the children come into school dressed as their favourite book character or in their pyjamas. Throughout the morning, each year group visited another to take part in reading buddies. The children shared how they enjoyed helping each other read.
After that, the children spent time in their classrooms completing activities themed around their class’ book. Year 3 were looking at Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Year 4 were looking at Holes and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Year 2 were looking at Meerkat Mail. Activities included retelling the story, drama, creating bookmarks, designing new front covers and much more.
After lunch, the children were very excited to find out who the masked readers were. Chants of ‘take it off’ could be heard throughout the building. To wrap up the day, the children then headed to the hall to check out this year’s themed potatoes. They look absolutely amazing.
