World Book Day

Today is World Book Day.  We have been celebrating this years theme 'Share a Million Stories' throughout the week with lots of different ways to share stories with our friends and families.  We have had the Book Fair in school - thank you to those families have visited to buy a book - the more you buy the more we earn for our class libraries. On Tuesday we had a visit from a theatre company  who told us the story of Robin Hood through musical theatre, the whole school joined the chorus line for the singing and some children were chosen to have cameo roles.  We began World Book Day with 'Breakfast with Books' - there is no better way to start the day than with a Pan au Chocolate in one hand and a book in the other!  Everyone came to school wearing a vocabulary jar depicting a word which was written, explained and illustrated.  Throughout the day we had the chance to share our vocabulary choices and hopefully some of these wonderful words will appear in the stories we write over the coming weeks.   Huge thanks to our families for supporting the activities on offer and helping us to foster in the children a love of reading for pleasure.
