World Book Day

Year 1 had a great day celebrating World Book Day. We all wore our pyjamas to school and brought in some of our favourite books.

We started the day altogether with an assembly. We talked about the different ways you can enjoy books and shared some of our favourite places to read. We thought it was quite funny that some people like to read on the toilet! We loved listening to some of our teachers retelling the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’.

Back in our classes we shared our books with our friends – we told our class why we liked the books we had brought in and even had a chance to read some of them.

Whilst dressed in our pyjamas, we also did some maths and some science. Panthers enjoyed reading the story ‘Poo in the Zoo’ and then investigating some ‘poo’ to find out if it had come from an omnivore, carnivore or herbivore.

We finished the day with a ‘Surprise Reader’.

If you would like to volunteer to come in and be a Surprise Reader please do let us know.

How to help at home 

  • Visit Bushey library – try looking in a different section to the part you usually look at, or choose a book you wouldn’t normally choose.
  • Share your favourite book with some of your family members, maybe an auntie/ uncle, grandparent. Perhaps a younger brother/sister would like to see your favourite book.
  • Make up your own story – where will your story be set? Which characters will you have in your story?
