FAOL: Whole School – World Book Day

Welcome back Primary 3!

It’s been a busy week in the Moonbeams class. The children have enjoyed listening to their favourite stories and have been effective contributors and confident individuals while acting out parts of the stories. The children made story boards to demonstrate their understanding of  the beginning, middle and end of Goldie Locks and the Three Bears and showed their creative side by designing new book covers and characters.

World Book Day fun!


In the Planets class, we enjoyed some World Book Day fun. We read a story called “A Monster Surprise” and created our own monster. We had to make choices on how many legs it would have, how many eyes, if it horns or wings etc.

We also read 5 different stories and rated them in order from our most favourite to least favourite. We read Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the three bears, The Gingerbread Man, Billy Goats Gruff and Jack and the Beanstalk.

We also played a game of ‘Who am I’ where we wore a character headband and had to guess who we were when given a range of clues. We had lots of fun playing this!

World Book Day

Today is World Book Day and our chosen class book was “The Hungry Caterpillar” – the ladies even dressed up as characters from the book.

We read the story and did lots of activities throughout the day.  We made caterpillars using our finger prints and counted the correct number to put on each one. We sorted healthy and unhealthy foods. We posted the food the caterpillar ate though the mouth of our big caterpillar and we also did some painting with a potato masher. It was lots of fun.

There are lots of different activities.

The Story we have choosen is ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ the reason we picked this story for World Book day is because Julia Donaldson has made it in to a Play.

Hopefully you should all have received your copy please get in touch if you haven’t.

On Thursday morning Vscene we will be reading the play, with all the props and sounds please join us – if you have any props or sounds on AAC Devices and you want to bring these please do! You can dress up if you want – or keep you pjs on – whatever you want!!!

Fairtrade Fortnight is from the 22nd of February to the 7th of March

Fair trade is a way of buying and selling products that allows the farmers to be paid a fair price for their produce, and have better working conditions. Trade is ‘unfair’ when farmers receive very low income and have poor conditions while the companies that sell their products make lots of money from them. The Fairtrade Mark was introduced in 1994, it iS awarded to products that are sold under certain fair-trading conditions.

Have you seen this symbol on anything – perhaps bananas, coffee or chocolate – have a look for it.

There is a couple of video links below you can watch which explain all about Fairtrade.

Snowdrops World Book Day

Confident Individuals – Effective Contributors – Successful Learners

The Snowdrops participated actively in a variety of World Book Day activities.  Everyone took part in our assembly and shared their favourite story from our class library.  In class, the Snowdrops engaged well with our story about Winnie Wagtail – participating in drama, songs and roleplay.  For homework, the Snowdrops all brought in a favourite story from home and shared this with their friends.  We also created farm animal masks related to our story and all pupils made personal choices.

World Book Day

The Stars class enjoyed World Book Day with lots of activities. We were effective contributors and made shortbread men alongside the story, ‘The Gingerbread Man’. Some of us were confident individuals as we dressed up on World Book Day and enjoyed the story, ‘The Old Toy Room’. We made story masks and explored a selection of old fashioned toys. We made a cup and ball game and enjoyed books we had brought in to share.



World Book Day Successful Learners

Apologies there is an issue affecting the upload of pictures.The Transition Boys had a wonderful time on Word Book Day. We had a couple of new faces in class. Ali Baba and The Boy in the Dress came for the day! The boys were really focussed as we read excerpts from each book. Some boys did a short study on David Walliams and some designed new characters. Everyone successfully made masks based on their favourite book.

World Book Day

We haven’t just celebrated books on one day but all week. We all really enjoy experiencing and reading the “That’s not my ….” books, so on Monday we collected all the books we had along with different materials and read them together. We touched the different materials then used to create capes and headbands.

On Wednesday we had lots of fun participating in activities around “Goldilocks and the three bears”. We had a large tuff tray full on oats and were confident individuals exploring the oats finding the images underneath and scooping it up into the different bowls. We played with bears deciding who was mummy bear, daddy bear and baby bear. We watched the story on the board and enjoyed playing with the puppets alongside.


Today is the big day World Book Day. Today we are focussing on the book Snow White and seven dwarfs. Miss Hill even dressed up as Snow White. During our morning group we read parts of the story. For cookery we made rice krispie treats made the read and moulded them to look like apples. We decorated out own mirror design and added tin foil to the middle so well all have our own magic mirror and explored the Snow White inspired tuff tray in the afternoon.

Once Upon A Time

We all had great fun celebrating World Book Day, we brought in our favourite stories from home to share with our friends.  We also read the ‘Wizard of Oz’ together and we were all effective contributors to the story.  We had our role play masks and had to act out our part of the story whilst it was being told.

We then took part in some activities related to our story, we were blindfolded and had to try give the Tin man a heart.  We used our super soakers to get the Wicked Witch of the West, she doesn’t like water! We also had to help feed our dog Toto as he was so hungry after his adventure.

After this we took in turns to share our favourite books with our friends in class.  To conclude the day, Aladdin found his beautiful princess, Jasmine and they all lived happily ever after.
