World Book Day

Today we celebrated World Book Day in School.  We began our day by inviting parents into school to have ‘Breakfast with a Book’ with their children.   We have had the book fair visiting school this week and many families took the opportunity to browse and buy books today.  Children took part in a range of reading related activities across the day all aimed at reinforcing the sheer joy and pleasure that can be had from reading a good book!   One of the most popular activities was ‘Stop, Drop and Read’ - the children carried their book around with them throughout the day and whenever the buzzer sounded they stopped what they were doing and read for a few minutes.   There was lots of positive talk about books and reading - particularly between children from different classes during House time.
