We have had a fantastic World Book Day, Each class chose a different author and enjoyed their books.
In Wrens, this was Julia Donalson and the children all made characters from the story out of junk.
Robins class read books by Jon Klassen and made their own mini theatres so that they could retell their innovated versions of ‘I Want My Hat Back’. Swallows enjoyed books by Rachel Bright and Jim Field- they made their own film with the children retelling one of the stories. Starlings celebrated the works of Roald Dahl and completed some creative writing and book cover designing. There were dragon eggs all around in Kingfishers as the children responded to ‘Tell Me A Dragon’ by Jackie Morris. In Eagles, the children were creating books with mechanisms having been inspired by works by Clotilde Perrin.
At the end of the day, we had a wonderful Collective Worship where children shared what they had been doing with the rest of the school.
We also had a lovely time where the teachers went and read a story to a different class.
