On the 4th March, Longacre celebrated World Book Day in style. We had a day fully booked with novel activities to promote a love of reading. Longacre staff showed no shelf-control in going all out to create inspiring sessions, which also raised awareness of fantastic female authors: recognising the upcoming International Women’s day.
The day saw Gruffalo hunts, Tiger Tea Parties, virtual author talks from female authors, building book theatres, recreating books covers from female authors, Harry Potter Cludeo in French, bilingual story books reading, book making, iMovie trailers filming for books, murder mystery solving and of course, comic book creation, lots of reading and exposure to incredibly interesting books of a variety of genres. There were plenty of good scribes with the final activity of ‘Shared Reading’, where each year group paired up with another and listened to each other’s superb story telling.
Finally, the children needed no Persuasion to take part in the whole school parade, where they strutted their stuff down the catwalk to showcase their wonderful fancy dress (thank you, parents and guardians!). It was a breath of fresh Eyre to have the children altogether again and have a day of festivities to enjoy one of life’s most simple and most rewarding pleasures.
