World Book Day
Each year the school celebrates World Book Day with a day devoted to book related activities, sometimes raising money for charity, for example Book Aid, which provides books for children in the Third World, or the cancer charities supported by the Readathon book challenge.
In 2021 we celebrated World Book Day a little later than usual on Friday 12th March. This was to allow all pupils to be a part of the fun, as schools had just reopened on 8th March following the second national school closure. The children looked amazing in their costumes, as ever.
Over the years we have done all sorts of different activities, for example one year we worked to the theme of "share a story", with each class learning a story to perform to their peers and on another occasion we all enjoyed working on picture books with a Global Learning focus. In 2016 we spent the day learning about the work of Shakespeare, as part of our celebration of the 400th anniversary of his death. We have also invited published authors, such as Billy Bob Buttons to visit and inspire the children with workshops and story telling sessions.
