The whole school dressed as their favourite fictional characters on Thursday to celebrate World Book Day. During class in the morning pupils worked together to try and come up with a list of ‘WOW’ words that they could use to make their own writing more exciting. This list of words will then be available for pupils to use in class from now on.
After lunch P6/7 read out some prepared extracts from books they thought nursery would enjoy and P4/5 read to P1-3. Then the whole school split into house groups and completed three activities which were as follows:
1. Acting out charades of popular children’s books for others to guess
2. Making up story middles and endings from a given starter
3. Completing a treasure hunt by working out cleverly worded clues
The finale was the judging of the fancy dress competition. Below are the winners: Keira (Nursery) as ‘Queen of Hearts’, Kendra (P1-3) as ‘Tinkerbell’, Amy (P4-5) as ‘Dorothy from Oz’ and Abby (P6-7) as ‘Gandalf ‘.
In P1-3 Finlay won the competition to design a new front cover for his favourite book ‘The twits’.
To end the afternoon, nursery gave a lovely performance of ‘Puff the magic Dragon’. A great time was had by all.
