World Book Day 2nd March 2017

Pupils dressed in their pyjamas and explored favourite bedtime stories to celebrate World Book Day. Below are some photos and examples of work from the day.

Year 1

We looked at the story the Tiger who came to tea.  When we arrived back from our swimming lessons, we noticed some footprints leading through our classroom. We decided to follow the footprints to catch the culprit who had left our classroom in a mess!
The footprints led to a story book and a can of TIGER FOOD!! We read the story as a class and then created our very own front covers for the story and role played the tiger coming to tea. As a class we decided we would LOVE the tiger to come for tea in our classroom so we made tiger food and designed our own labels.
At the end of the day, Miss Moore’s class came to visit us and we read our favourite books to each other.

Year 2

Class 5 had a fantastic World Book Day! We read the story “Peace At Last” and performed it using instruments and sounds. Next, we wrote our own versions, where Mr Bear tried to sleep in all sorts of places. In the afternoon we made some beautiful bear pictures and shared our books with Mrs Lewis’ class in a huge den which we made in the classroom. What a fun day we had!

Year 4

We read the book Whatever Next! by Jill Murphy. In the story Baby Bear goes to the moon and back in a cardboard box and all before bedtime, whatever next!. So we researched space rockets for Baby Bear to use instead of a cardboard box and then
designed and made our own prototypes.

Year 5

Y5 FR and Y1 JI booked an hour’s slot to share their Bedtime Stories. The children spent an hour together and it was a great experience. As you can see they engaged with each other and forged some new and special friendships.

Year 6

In Year 6 completed a challenge to ‘Get caught reading’ before we looked at our favourite bedtime stories.

 

We then looked at The Enormous Crocodile and Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book and worked in groups to create our own versions. Here is the Year 6 version of Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book:
