World Book Day 2015!


On World Book Day, Anne of Green Gables and Maid Marian welcomed lots of book characters to their celebrations.  Each character retold his/her story using a book or props.  There were roses, suitcases, baskets – and even Paddington’s marmalade sandwiches to sample!

Then, they had surprise visitors!  Two newborn lambs were brought in by a pupil’s Mum for a cuddle and a little bottle-feed.

Later, Years 3+4 acted out their fractured fairy-tale play, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, using dramatic voices, etc. as they had been taught in ‘Talking and Listening.’ Pupils then engaged in creative activities: designing a national book token for a World Book Day Competition and decorating Frozen buns.

After, pupils wrote about their “bullseye”/favourite activity of the day on arrows, to stick to Marian’s target. The special day ended with Maid Marian giving each pupil chocolate coins in a ‘Medieval purse’.

I was Charlie from ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’.  I printed a golden ticket from the internet and stuck it on a chocolate bar.  I read the book about two years ago. 

I was Oliver from ‘Oliver Twist’.  In the afternoon we dressed up and got a snack at the end.

I was Princess Kate of Cambridge.  I chose her because she is famous and I have the clothes that she would wear.  I had a mask that every one thought was scary!  My favourite part was talking about ‘myself’.

I was Spider-Man on World Book Day.  It was fun!  My favourite part was showing every body who I was.  At the end we got to eat some food and then we went home in our costumes.

I dressed up as Mandie Shaw for World Book Day.  Mandie books are my favourite books because Mandie and Celia are always solving mysteries.  I also liked listening to other people talking about themselves.  I didn’t like getting my photo taken though!

I was Mariella.  I brought a book called ‘Mariella Mystery Investigates A Cupcake Conundrum’.  I also brought my cooking set and a chocolate cupcake.  The best part of the day was seeing every ones costumes.The book was about a girl called Mariella.  She has to make a normal cupcake (that was the chocolate one) but also a mystery one.

I dressed up as Heidi because I could not think of anything else!  I wore pink shoes and a dress and shirt.  In my story, I didn’t think that grandpa wanted me there and I did not want to stay but after a while I wanted to stay.

Fireman Visit

Year 5 pupils with the fireman

In March, Year 5 pupils enjoyed a visit from a fireman, who talked about hazards and fire safety in the home.  After, they participated in a question and answer session.

Each pupil received a fire safety pack with games, information leaflets and worksheets.  To thank the fireman for his visit, the class presented him with a handmade card to show their appreciation.
