World Book Day 2023



The whole school read the book 'The Word Collector' by Peter H. Reynolds. The story is about a young boy who shares his vast collections of words with others. We did our very own Windmill word collection and the children (and staff) dressed up as a word so we could collect words as a school.


Our youngest pupils had a 'Reading Cafe' in the school hall. They enjoyed their favourite books with parents and teachers. In our very own 'pop-up' cafe, complete with refreshments.


The children from Years 3 and 4 walked to the local library to learn about the library and find out how to borrow books. They have returned to school really excited about the array of new and exciting texts they can explore!


Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a live virtual reading event with author Michael Morpurgo. They also supported our younger pupils as 'Reading Buddies' and engaged in paired reading around the school.


The highlight of the day was a transatlantic reading session! Each class was paired with a class at Nazareth School in Rochester, USA via Zoom and shared books across the Atlantic! It was fantastic to pair with children from a different part of the World to celebrate World book Day. Here is a link to the news coverage in Rochester!
