World Book Day 2022
Our theme for this year was ‘A world of words’ as we really wanted to enrich the children’s vocabulary, get them to tackle more ambitious books and use more adventurous vocabulary choices in their writing. All the children and staff came in dressed as a word. We had so many great ideas: scientist, graceful, mysterious, artistic! You all looked amazing. We were visited on the Wednesday by local author Gemma Lees who read her book to KS1 then went and visited individual classes where we created our very own Ethan Elephant picture book! On World Book Day author Dan Worsley visited the whole school and told us a hillarious story called 'A Pat on the Head'. Dan then went and worked with KS2 classes inspiring them to create their own pieces of writing.
Some classes went to visit Coppull Library and got to scan out their friends books like a real librarian would. There was all sorts of wonderful book and vocabulary themed learning going on around school, from 'Booknics' to reading scavenger hunts. We even created our own class photo dictionaries using photos of ourselves dressed up as a word!
