World Book Day 2023!

We all had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day in school on Thursday 2nd March. This year, we were very lucky to watch a live performance of Alice in Wonderland by the fantastic Hobgoblin theatre company. Both the staff and children thoroughly enjoyed the performance (many of whom also dressed up as a character from Alice in Wonderland). Following the theatre performance, the children participated in a wide range of activities based on the famous story by Lewis Carroll. In addition to this, the children enjoyed meeting with their buddy classes for a shared reading session. A group of our Year 5 children also had the opportunity to participate in a World Book Day quiz at a local secondary school (Aldridge School) where they competed against other Year 5 children from across the local area. As you can see from the photos, the children had a lovely time and couldn’t wait to spend their book token on a book of their choice!

World Book Day 2022!

We all had a lovely time celebrating the 25th anniversary of World Book Day in school this year. Both staff and children brought in their favourite book and dressed up as their favourite book character. The children also participated in a wide range of activities to celebrate the importance of reading and to promote reading for pleasure. Some of the activities included: WBD quizzes, reading scavenger hunts, shared reading sessions, paired reading sessions, cat walks, guess the character games and inventing their own book character. As you can see from the photos, the children had a wonderful time and couldn’t wait to spend their book token on a book of their choice.
