Nursery have had a fabulous day toady, sharing their love for reading and books. The children all came to school dressed as their favourite book characters. Some of the characters in Nursery included, Little Red Riding Hood, Peter Rabbit and Matilda!
The morning started with the children all sharing their favourite stories, brought from home, with the older children from Y3. The children listened intently as their friends read stories. The children were keen to discuss who they had come dressed as.
Mrs Cook had very kindly arranged for Sarah Griffiths, a local children’s author, to come into school for a very special World Book Day assembly. Sarah brought her story, ‘Sophie’s Spectacles’ alive by inviting children to help act parts out using props. Sarah also spoke to the children about how they can follow their interests in becoming a future author.
During the assembly, some children in Key Stage One were presented with Book Worm Certificates. Each week, the teachers will nominate children to receive a certificate to celebrate children who love to read. Nursery’s bookworms this week were Timmy and Maxwell, who have both done lots of extra reading at home, with their families. The Nursery staff are so proud of you both. Who will be Nursery’s bookworm next week?
Throughout the day, children were given time to discuss, with their friends, who they had come dressed as. They children spoke about why it’s their favourite character, with many of them recalling parts of their favourite story too.
Thank you again to all parents for providing their children with the most beautiful costumes, for us to celebrate World Book Day together!
