World book day!

Thursday 07 March 2024

Today we celebrated reading in Year 2!

The children looked fantastic in their world book day outfits. We enjoyed talking about our favourite characters and books.

We started the day with an assembly celebrating the origins of world book day and listening to some of the teachers read extracts from their favourite books. Mr Wilks talked to us about how books can mean different things to people and how to spend the £1 book token.

Later in the morning, we enjoyed paired reading with Year 4. It was fantastic! all the children enjoyed sharing their favourite stories and reading aloud to a Year 4 child.

Finally, after playtime, we had a webinar with John Patrick Green – author of the Investigators books. We listened to how he creates the books and had a go at drawing some of the characters. The drawings were fantastic!

Help at home by discussing the activities your child has done today and looking at the free books they can buy with their £1 book token.
