Last Tuesday we celebrated World Book Day in our school. Most of the children and adults dressed up as book characters or brought in props, for example Dennis the Menace, Alice in Wonderland, Varjak Paw, the BFG and loads more.
In the morning, after playtime, we had an amazing assembly to start it all off. Mrs Wood, dressed as Eeyore, told us all about World Book Day and the exciting news about the school’s new book buddy, an author who will be donating books to us for our reading corners.
Mrs McAndrew, who was dressed as Mr Tickle with extremely long arms, had made a quiz where you had to guess the book from a small piece of the character’s picture. Some of them were quite difficult.
Next, some of the adults explained who they were. Mr Napier was quite scary as a Viking because he roared and he implied that he might eat children! Mr B looked completely unrecognisable as a professor from Harry Potter with a crystal ball.
Then the teachers surprised us by reading lots of different poems, either on their own or in pairs. They read them brilliantly with funny voices.
When we went back to class in Year 3 there was a dragon’s egg which had cracked with green slimy stuff coming out of it. We drew a book cover about it and listened to lots of stories throughout the day. We even wrote some Viking jokes!
In Year 4 we wrote about our favourite book characters. Jake wrote about Tom Gates and Dominika wrote about the fantastic Varjak Paw. We even got to illustrate them!
Other things that happened around the schcool were the Year 5 class went to read and share books with the Reception children and the Year Sixes came round the classes and recited some poems.
What a fun day we all had! We can’t wait till next year!
