World Book Day
On Thursday this week was World Book Day. Instead of the usual dressing up as your favourite characters we thought we would try something new. Children had to bring in a good quality, unwanted book to swop. The idea was that the children would take away a book that they had not read in return for one they no longer wanted. Across the school there were plenty of books swopped and all of the children that took part came away with a new book to enjoy at home.
In addition to the book swop, at lunch time the children could take part in a book competition. They arrived eager in Swallowtails class throughout lunchtime to take part and win prizes. Skippers had to match the book title to the book cover. Admirals matched a summary of a book to the front cover and Emperors and Swallowtails had to read a book summary and write the book title. Some children even had a go at finding out the authors. Great fun was had by all and the children were really enthusiastic about their new books.
There are also only about 2 weeks left to log all of the books you have read on the read for my school website. Remember if you read 8 or more books you can win some great book prizes and the children that read the most in each class will be rewarded with a prize for their superb effort. If you have forgotten your log in details just come and find me for a new log in.
