World Book Day Part One

Students enjoyed many fun activities to mark World Book Day today.

Mrs Hiller and the English department began the celebrations this morning with a fabulous assembly talking about the literary world. She also announced this year’s challenge, which was for students to find out their teachers’ favourite childhood books. Staff wore the titles on their backs which made for a fun activity throughout the day!

Many Senior School staff and students had volunteered to read to the younger children in School, including Mrs Horner, who read ‘Where the Wild Things are’ by Maurice Sendak to our Year 1 children and Mrs Moore who read ‘The Queens Orang-Utan’ by David Walliams to an excited group of Reception students.

Mrs Millar kept our Year 4 students enthralled with ‘Cliff Hanger’ by Jacqueline Wilson and Mrs Gough entertained our Nursery children with Spider Sandwiches by Claire Freedman. All children (and staff!) thoroughly enjoyed this extra special treat.

A positvely gruesome lunch was served by Thomas Franks at the Senior School with delights such as ‘The Witches Pea Soup’ and ‘Bruce Bogtrotters Chocolate cake’ on the menu.

What a fun filled day our students have had.

We look forward to more celebrations with our Infants and Juniors tomorrow!
