At St Matthew’s we believe that reading is so important for learning in all subjects and we always celebrate the fun of reading a range of books. Occasionally there are days when we join in with schools across the world to celebrate reading and World Book Day is one of those days.
World Book Day last Thursday was marked by children and staff dressing up as a character from one of their favourite books. We had a host of witches and wizards, super heroes, kings, queens, princes and princesses. And it wasn’t hard to find Wally … you only had to pop into any classroom on Thursday and you were sure to find him!
We hope you enjoy watching the slideshow of more than two hundred photos from World Book Day … let us know if you manage to see yourself in any of the photos by leaving a comment below.
