World Book Day

Click here to listen to stories read by our Year 5 librarians

We held a special whole school assembly so that we could see the wonderful costumes everyone was wearing. Then some of the teachers acted out their own World Book Day version of the story 'Stuck' by Oliver Jeffers; it was very funny!


Finally we watched a video of Mr Turvey reading a bedtime can see it for yourself further down this page.

Throughout the day we explored lots of different books and in the afternoon we swapped classes to enjoy a story read by a different teacher.


After school we held a Grand Book Swap on the playground so that everyone could have a new book to take home and enjoy. It was a wonderful day full of exciting characters and stories.
