WORLD BOOK DAY! Wow!!!!!
What an amazing day Bloxwich Academy have had. Thank you to all our parents and carers for buying costumes of your child’s favourite characters or sending your child/ren into school in their pyjamas. The children all looked amazing.
I am over the moon at our many potato characters which have been brought into school. We had a Mr Bump, a school scene, a family of potatoes’, Sonic, a Super Mario character and many, many more- they were amazing! KS2 have brought in their own designs of a new book cover and blurb, and I was delighted to see so many entries which will be displayed in the Accelerated Reading area for all our children to see and read- well done.
Throughout the day, all our children had the chance to take part in the World Book Day Dance Workshops- Early Years performed through dance ‘The Three Little Pigs’, KS1 performed through dance ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and KS2 performed through dance ‘Matilda’. The children have been telling me that they have really enjoyed taking part and a Year 3 child said’ I enjoyed being moody like Matilda!’ This was an amazing opportunity for the children to express themselves and it certainly helped promote the love of reading.
Throughout the day, there have been many World Book Day activities taking place- from children making their own stories using ICT, children taking part in book quizzes and competing against each other’s knowledge, children creating their own book covers and blurb and many, many more. It has been a pleasure to walk around school and see our children engaged, happy and loving all the activities that they had the opportunity to complete today.
Please find attached many photos from our amazing day. I’m sure you will agree they are fantastic, and I can’t wait to celebrate World Book Day again next year!
