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 developing countries.
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. We have previously 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.
In 2023 we enjoyed some amazing dance workshops delivered by a tutor from "West End in Schools". Classes 1 and 2 enjoyed enacting elements of "The Enormous Crocodile" by Roald Dahl, and Classes 3 and 4 explored "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll.
