We enjoyed a fantastic World Book Day on Wednesday 14th March. The theme this year was 'Share a story' and we held lots of different story telling events and competitions. The children were asked to dress as their favourite book character and prizes were awarded for the most creative costumes. We also held a door decoration competition and classes voted for and decorated their doors based upon their favourite books.
This year we held a reading café in the library before school. Families were invited to visit the café and share a book. Thank you to everybody who attended.
Classes voted for a book and decorated their classroom door based upon the book or a theme from the story.
A big thank you to all of our children and their families for the fantastic effort and creativity used for this year's World Book Day costumes. Here are a selection of photographs of some of the amazing creations worn on the day.
We held story telling sessions in the library throughout the day. Ms Newing displayed the World Book Day books and read extracts from the books to the children.
The Governors visited the school to judge costumes and the door decoration competition and prizes were presented in assembly. We also presented special reading hampers to two children who had completed the 'World Book Day Reach for the Stars' reading challenge.

Ms Newing spent the day reading a selection of the World Book Day 2017 books to each year group. The children loved listening to the different stories and where then inspired to use their vouchers to purchase their own copies of the books.
