World Book Day at Rothesay Primary

Rothesay World Book DayAs usual, World Book Day was a great success at Rothesay Primary. To celebrate 100 years of Roald Dahl, pupils dressed up as one of his characters or a character from their favourite book. We had all sorts – Miss Trunchbull, The Grand High Witch, Charlie Bucket, Willy Wonka and a crowd of Oompa-Loompas! Our local book shop, Print Point, moved into the library so that everyone could spend their book tokens and the school pupil librarians went round the classes sharing their favourite books.

Rothesay World Book Day P1-2bPrimary 1 and 2 visited the library for their monthly book study, which this time was ‘All Change’ by Ian Whybrow. They met the Book Bug who had just been up to visit our preschool children.

Local author, Myra Duffy visited the school and told pupils that she wrote her first story when she was 8 – so to get writing! The school re-launched their ‘Reading Challenge’ recently and one pupil has already read 15 books which gained her a golden ticket to claim a free book from the school book shop.

What a lovely celebration of reading at Rothesay Primary!
