Junior School World Book Day 2017
On Thursday, 2nd March, everyone in the Junior School had a very exciting day as they took part in World Book Day 2017.
This year, every year group chose their favourite Roald Dahl book and selected their costume in accordance with this. All involved had great fun dressing up as their favourite book character (even the teachers!), with the parade of costumes in the morning being a particular highlight of the day.
The event was ably led by Mrs Twit (aka Miss Rushin) and the impact of this occasion was clearly evident in the pupils’ final pieces of written work. “We always find that immersing the pupils in a themed and multi-sensory day such as this inspires some truly auspicious work,” commented Miss Rushin.
Throughout the day, there were many original and exciting activities to take part in including: following George’s footsteps, making magical potions and medicines, entering Mrs Twit’s kitchen to make ‘wormy spaghetti’ and creating a Mr Twit dirty beard, making personal fact files about their character, with a focus on life journeys; and fashioning Charlie’s delicious lollipops from an array of materials.
After taking part in these entertaining activities, every class made their own class books in the style of Roald Dahl. A very memorable day was had by all.
