“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney
We had a wonderful week celebrating World Book Day which fell on Thursday March 2nd. All children were given a voucher which entitled them to a free age-appropriate book, available locally in Books & Gifts and other reputable book shops. The children participated in Design a Book Cover Competition. The parents who volunteer their time in our library each Monday morning helped us to select a winner from each class. Photos and details to follow. Our senior classes paid a visit to our local public library in Kilcock, on Friday March 3rd. The children across the school were allocated extra reading slots throughout their days at school throughout the week.
The highlight of the week fell on Thursday March 2nd when all the children dressed up as a character from a book they had read and enjoyed. Here is a sample of some of the costumes they wore on that day.
All our children made a great effort with their costumes but I think a special word of praise and a small prize should go to Emma in Third Class (Ms Mc Cabe/Ms Curran )for her wonderful Spitfire, created for her character fro Grandpa’s Great Escape, by David Walliams. A special word of thanks to the teachers for facilitating the event and to the Parents Association who helped to capture these memories.
Reading is a wonderful way for parents and children to enjoy some quality time together and a bedtime story is a lovely clam way to round off the day together.
