WORLD BOOK DAY 2017
In school we had fun celebrating World Book Day with a 'Book Blind Date'. The children exchanged books which were wrapped in plain wrapping with a few minimal clues so that they could choose an unknown book and be surprised as they unwrapped their 'date'. This was a fantastic way for children to be curious and interested in books and encouraged lots of book talk! There was a real buzz in school as lots of grown ups came into school to enjoy this event alongside children.
Children's outfits were based on celebrating a love of language and words and some of the creativity and imagination was amazing to see! Well done everyone for fantastic participation. Even staff brought their own 'Blind Date Books' to swap and enjoy reading too! :-)
We had a fabulous day celebrating Roald Dahl's fabulous children's books. A whole range of characters came into school and what fun we had!
