World Book Day 2021
Thursday 4th March 2021
Until life is a little more settled, our World Book Day celebrations looked a little differently this year. Everyone, whether in school or at home had the opportunity to part in lots of fantastic reading activities. Children completed activities such as; designing their own book, creating their favourite character face plates, created their own rivers of reading and shared lots of lovely stories.
When we can, during the summer term, we will have a bigger and better whole school celebration involving more reading challenges, dressing up and more! (COVID allowing) We will write to you again closer to the time.
World Book Day celebrates the joy and value of books and reading, especially for children. Each child received a £1 World Book Day Book Token that could either be exchanged for one of THIRTEEN special £1 World Book Day books or used to get £1 of any book costing £2.99 or more. You can find out more about the books at worldbookday.com
We created some reading rivers to show how much reading we do everyday. There are words all around us and we were surprised by how many times we read throughout the day because of the tasks that do in our everyday lives.
Paper Plate Characters
The children chose their favourite book characters and recreated them using paper plates. We ended up with a wide variety from lots of different genres of literacy.
Some of the children, (and staff!) decided to read a book in some interesting places around school. We were very impressed with the imaginative locations that they chose.
