World Book Day 2023

Children have had a fantastic day today, as they marked World Book Day 2023 by dressing up and participating in age-related World Book Day activities in class. The EYFS/KS1 children even had a zoom call with author Andrew Swanson, about his book ‘The Caterpillar With Too Few Feet’.

We also had a special visit from Cllr Jonathan Dulston, who thought everyone looked terrific!

Our two reception classes and children in Year’s 1 & 2 came together to listen a children’s author, Andrew Swanson. The author introduced himself and read through the story, ‘The Centipede with Too Few Feet’. Following the story he invited the children to ask home some questions. The children were happy to speak about their favourite part of the story and discuss their favourite character. Most children said their favourite character was the mouse and they liked the ending because everyone was happy and the rat and the centipede were friends. After the story Raymond was so inspired he then created his own centipede! All children thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

In Year 2, the children discovered all the colouring pencils had disappeared from their pots and a letter had been sent to them. The colouring pencils were tired and needed a rest so they had gone into hiding. They were unhappy that we use them all the time, leave them on the floor and sharpen when them when they don’t need it. They gave us their demands to stop leaving them on the floor, stop sharpening them when they don’t need them and to stop chewing them otherwise they would not come back!

So we decided to write the colouring pencils a letter saying sorry and to persuade them to return to our classroom.

Luckily, they read our lovely letters and returned after lunch. We think they might have got the idea from the story ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ so we read the story. We enjoyed the story so much that we created our own little crayon boxes filled with crayons and speech bubbles about what they crayons might have said.    

Below you will see some of the superb costumes the children wore. As you will understand, there were too many costumes to photograph everyone, but EVERY CHILD looked brilliant, whether they came as their favourite book character, favourite sports person or wore something red.
