The year 2022 marks the celebration of 25 years of World Book Day and the children (and adults) had a day of ‘book related’ activities to promote reading for pleasure.
On Monday, some of the KS2 classes watched ‘Live from the Cambridge Theatre’ where they heard from many of the popular authors about their journey into story writing. On 3rd March, everybody dressed up as their favourite book character and we held a ‘character parade’ with the school council members judging the different costumes. Following that, the older children in school read their favourite book to the younger children. Quizzes, competitions and treasure hunts were a few of the examples of the activities the children had opportunities to be involved in during the day.
