We all celebrated World Book Day on Wednesday 7th March (after having to postpone due to the snow days). It was fantastic to see so many children dressed up and eager to show off their wonderful costumes. The theme of WBD this year is 'sharing a story' and we launched the day with an assembly where some children shared their book reviews for the £1 books on offer with the children’s vouchers.
Some of the activities for the day included guessing which member of staff was hiding behind a book and celebrating reading by sharing our favourite stories!
In addition, we launched a ‘catch your pet or an animal reading’ competition and had lots of hilarious and unique entries! Thank you to everyone who entered. Mr Levers has judged the photos and the winners will be announced in Monday’s whole school assembly.
Classes spent the day looking at twisted tales and original tales:
Ladybirds & Bumblebees focused on the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
Hedgehogs looked at the story ‘Wolf Won’t Bite’ that explores the relationship between the three little pigs and Mr Wolf.
Otters & Foxes used the story ‘Foggy, foggy forest’ to develop their inference skills.
Dragonflies & Kingfishers decided who they believed when reading the Wolf’s version of the story behind the three little pigs using the book ‘The true tale of the three little pigs’.
Chaffinches & Kestrels used the story ‘Jack and the baked beanstalk’ which gives a twist on the original tale – the giant isn’t quite who we thought he was!
Owls & Woodpeckers used their knowledge of stories and traditional tales to write their own truth behind a tale. For example, what if the glass slipper actually fit the ugly sister? Or the pigs blew down the wolf’s house?
Overall, it was a fun day where we all shared our enjoyment of books and reading!
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
