This year, the children and staff at St Matthew’s celebrated World Book Day in style!
On Thursday 7th March 2019, each year group chose a book to base their activities on to engage the children in books and to try a range of activities that link to their chosen text.
Here are the books that each year group chose:
Year R – Where’s my Teddy? by Jez Alborough
Year 1 – Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson
Year 2 – Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne, The Greedy Zebra by Mwenye Hadithi and The Enormous Elephant by Mwenye Hadithi
Year 3 – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
Year 4 – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Year 5 – Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy
Year 6 – Kunk-Fu Kylie (From The World’s Worst Children) by David Walliams
The children and staff participated in a range of activities including making potions, sky ships, creating their own Kung-Fu headbands, enjoying Turkish Delight in the frozen world of Narnia, as well as a pizza picnic with teddy bears! For a closer look into what each year group got up to, check out their blogs here.
Don’t forget to take your child to a local book shop to use their £1 World Book Day token to purchase one of the books specially written for this year’s World Book Day or to receive £1 off any other book! It really does make a difference.
Reading is dreaming with your eyes open!
