We celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 1st of March. Our theme was picture books.
We invited all of our parents in to ‘Share a story’ with their children until 9.30. After that, teachers focused on a different picture book for each class and designed some creative activities around the story that they chose. Teachers also spent some time allowing pupils to share stories with the class including doing their own ‘story time’, with less teacher involvement and more pupil agency.
Pupils dressed up as their favourite characters and are going to be submitting their own home-made picture books entries for a competition – deadline is 26th March.
Every year group also arranged trips to local bookshops – Newham Bookshop and Foyles in Stratford. Year 6 went to two central London bookshops.
