We have moved our World Book Day activities to Friday 5th of March to ensure the children have some inspirational activities to do during their offline day. It never ceases to amaze me how creative our staff are and looking at the number of activities the children have to choose from, it is clear they are going to be spoilt for choice.
By bringing stories to life in this way, teachers help children to learn. Stories have so much to offer: they develop listening and communication skills, improve concentration and memory, bring experiences alive, create a sense of wonder and help children learn to sequence events. They are a joyful, shared learning opportunity. Reading together is a valuable experience of all ages and helps to ignite a lifelong passion for reading.
Mrs Kemp, our English coordinator, has put together an amazing Book Challenge Grid, so the children are going to have a great day of reading. Please share photos of the children taking part in the challenge and share them with their form teacher, all children taking part will earn house points.
Don’t forget, during our final day of lockdown learning (dare I say it…) we will be wearing our World Book Day costumes online and having fun with our friends. Who will you dress up as?
