World Book Day - March 2019

Once again our children surpassed all expectations when they arrived dressed as characters to celebrate World Book Day. The array of characters was spectacular and it was great to see staff members joining in the occasion.

Teachers were particularly impressed by the children’s knowledge of different authors and by their enthusiasm when talking about their favourite books.

After much deliberation, a prize was awarded to a child from each class during a special assembly.

Prior to World Book Day, the children also enjoyed a visit from children’s author, John Malam. John dressed in an authentic WW1 uniform and took on the role of Corporal Frederick Horsnell. The children were fascinated to find out all about the life of this young soldier and were spurred on to write letters and non-chronological reports during the writing workshops.

We would like to thank everyone, once again, for the support given to the children on World Book day. As you know, when children are encouraged to read and enjoy books as children, they develop a love of reading which lasts a lifetime.
