World Book Day 2024

Wow! What an amazing, (and very comfortable!) day we all had celebrating World Book Day. There was a wonderful buzz in the air with a day of jam-packed reading celebrations, all in our PJs! The World Book Day theme of ‘Read Your Way’ inspired us all. 

Each Year group explored a fantastic book series to inspire a love of reading. Reception went on a journey with ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ series making ladybird biscuits, wanted posters and even drawing maps of the farm and writing a plan of escape. Year 1 dived into ‘The Dragonsitter’ series creating their own dragons and imagining what mischief their dragon would cause. Finally, Year 2 delved into the hilarious ‘Mr Penguin’ series describing the characters and creating book covers for their own.

As well as all the fun classroom activities, we also buddied up with WJS to have a ‘Cosy Federation Read’. The children were able to share their books with each other and read in comfortable places across both schools.

The staff had also secretly prepared a game of ‘Guess Who?’ which included mystery videos of them reading a story but our faces were covered, so the children had to guess who was reading.

Finally, we also held our ‘Potato Character Competition’. We were all blown away by the amazing, creative entries but the School Council had the very difficult job of deciding the winners! We were excited to share all of the creations at the end of the day, when they were presented on the playground.
