Today we celebrated alongside 100 countries around the world to celebrate World Book Day 2018. One of the most well-known activities we look forward to is when our children (and teachers!) are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite literary character.
From Pinocchio to Mr Stink and Alice in Wonderland, we were yet again overwhelmed by the effort of the brilliant costumes – and braving the freezing weather to do so!
Children took part in lots of different activities throughout the day including reading their favourite book to each other; sharing a book with their parents; getting cosy in the library and dressing their classroom door as a book from their year group’s chosen author. The children had lots of fun and there was a real buzz around school.
Thank you to everyone involved and we are very much looking forward to the next one already!
World Book Day in Giraffes
On World Book Day, the children arrived to find a very cross Daddy Bear wondering who had eaten his porridge. They then discovered Baby Bear looking very sad beside his broken chair. Under the whiteboard lay Goldilocks, fast asleep in a bed!
We all dressed up as a character from a book, and told everyone who we were. Some children brought a book from home to share. We listened to lots of different stories throughout the day, shared books with grown ups, played in the Three Bears’ role play house, and pretended to make porridge.
Asda Steve (Harry Potter) gave the children a leaflet, badge and sticker chart all about reading at home, and the children were given a £1 book token.
Well done, Giraffes, it was a fun day all about books.
