World Book Day 2017

It’s been a busy week at IMS as we celebrate World Book Day.

All classes were invited to the Mod to browse and buy some of the books from Usbournes, their was a hype of activity as they made decisions of which books to buy for class.

Class Mull loved to look at all the books but it was such a hard decision to choose one to take back to class.

Clasd Arran had a lovely visit to Waterstones, Newton Mearns for a story telling session from the staff. Thank you for taking the time out to read us some stories. Our Head Boy Rob, was totally immersed in all the books and loved the stories. Olivia and Peter were delighted with the visual aids to support the stories.

World Book Day

Last day of the World Book Day celebrations.

We have had lots going on this week to celebrate World Book Day.

Invited storytellers came into school and we also had a story from the child smile team.

Our senior management team led stories on Thursday and Friday and we finished off the week with a whole school assembly.

Classes have been engaging in lots of imaginative activities to
foster an enjoyment of reading.

We’ve had the Hungry caterpillar, Flat Stanley, the Gingerbread Man, the Smartest Giant in Town, the Borrowers and the seniors have been attending the library at Woodfarm High School to read some books. Flat Stanley treasure hunts took place around the school and the ISS@Ims group performed an interactive
“The Smartest Giant in Town” for the Family Centre pupils.

At this afternoons assembly, certificates were awarded to the
best dressed, and classes all presented about the activities
they undertook for the week.
The young people were so proud of their achievements and
took great delight explaining all about their book topics.

Thank you to Miss Dewhurst and Mrs Barron for organising World Book Day 2016
