A Story for Bedtime

Published Tuesday 16th of April 2013 02:10:47 PM

The school marked World Book Day by thoroughly embracing the theme of 'bedtime reads'. Local residents may have been surprised to see children arriving for school still dressed for bed, but it was all in celebration of this annual event.

Following an arrival at school through a bed shaped door there were lots of events taking place throughout the day. The children each donated £1 to come to school in their nightwear and there was an impressive array of onesies, pyjamas and dressing gowns on show!

One of the highlights of the day was the opportunity for the children to come together and listen to a bedtime story, whilst enjoying milk and cookies. The story was read by members of the teaching, office, catering and grounds staff who had come together to make a video recording of Roald Dahl's revolting Rhyme version of 'Little Red Riding Hood', which was played out on a large screen in the hall.

Other activities taking place around the school included Year 5 and 6 children visiting Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 in order to read to the younger children.

Head of English, Ms Williams. Said 'World Book Day is always a wonderful opportunity for us to emphasise how fantastic reading is. Apart from engaging our minds and expanding our knowledge, books can take us to imaginary lands and introduce us to interesting characters and ideas. The children really enjoyed the activities, revisiting favourite stories, in addition to being inspired to read something new!'
