World Book Day 2024

Colourful pupils and staff celebrated World Book Day by focusing activities on ‘The Day The Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt.

Inspired by the funny, best-selling book, children dressed in their favourite colour or colours.

Many parents and carers took the opportunity to come into school, hear classes share their favourite stories and read with their child.

Each child took home a £1 book voucher to put towards purchasing a new book.

Principal Mrs Scott said: "We've had a fabulous day, focused on the importance of books and reading.

"I'd like to thank our parents and carers who participated and did a terrific job ensuring their children looked the part. There were some great ideas that followed the theme.

"I'd also like to thank Miss Jenney for organising the day and the staff for supporting her with it."

Children, parents and staff were also thanked by Miss Jenney.

"It's been fantastic to see how creative the children and their parents and carers have been," she said.

"Drew Daywalt's book is loved by children of all ages. I just thought it would provide a perfect theme and help avoid some of the unnecessary cost associated with dressing up for World Book Day.

"It has been fun and educational."

The school also held its ‘Design a Plate' competition to celebrate the special day.

Children were invited to take inspiration from a favourite book and create artwork on a paper plate given to them after half term.

Mrs Scott said: "Well done to all the children who took part in the competition. There were some wonderful pieces of artwork that we put on display for parents and children to enjoy on World Book Day.

"Thank you everyone for a tremendous effort to mark a special day."
