Despite the freezing weather all our children and staff have made a fantastic effort for World Book Day. The pleasure the children take in wearing and talking about their characters, books and costumes makes all the hard work worthwhile. We appreciate that sometimes it’s hard to see the impact these events have when you are not in school and hope that these photos of the children sharing stories together give you some idea of how much the children enjoy WBD. They love listening to different stories, being read to and reading to older/younger pupils and learning about the stories behind the costumes. They learnt in assembly how reading can ‘nourish the mind’ and shared their own thoughts on why sharing stories is so important. “Reading is a place where you can escape reality and go into a whole new world where anything is possible” Year 6. “I love books. I like the sound of the pages turning and the feel of the paper as I read” Year 3.
The staff have also been thinking about their favourite children’s books which now they would like to share with YOU! We hope that you find some books on this list which are new to you and that you and your families will enjoy as much as we do! All of the books are currently in print so find them in your local library or order them in a local bookshop!
