World Book Day – Mr. Yarrow writes: The playground was filled with Snow Whites, Red Riding Hoods, Rapunzels, Beauty from Beauty and the Beast, Harry Potters; the hall was ablaze of colour with fairies, Little Bo Peeps Buzz Lightyears, Willy Wonkas, Robin Hood and Mary Poppins. The office was staffed by Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Aslan from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe put in an appearance – all because of World Book Day. Throughout the day the children took part in a programme of activities. This included a Readathon. The children shared books that they were interested in, such as storybooks, comics, non-fiction, and magazines. They designed a bookmark competition which linked to either a character or a particular book and the winners from each class were chosen for their creativity and rewarded with a book mark certificate. Some of the children chose to go to lessons in other classes where the teachers read stories from different styles of books such as Irish Myths and Legends, Mr. Men, fairy tales, some children found out about sportsmen such as Andy Murray. For the last part of this action packed afternoon the children were entertained by teacher interviews. They talked about their favourite childhood or recent book and answered questions about why they loved reading. Thank you to Mr. Hagger, Mr. Watlkins, Mrs. Salazar, Miss McCallion and Mrs. Ruffle for taking part. The children really enjoyed listening to them.
