WBD 2022 – Celebrating books in Year One!

We spent World Book Day celebrating books and our ability to share stories. Our wonderful costumes, imagination and creativity was great to see and be able to share with one another.

We shared the book Supertato and focused on the character of the ‘Evil Pea’. We thought about all his evil plots and the mischief he got into throughout the story. We then worked to create a wanted poster to help find the Evil Pea, our brilliant pictures and fantastic description would definitely make it easier to find him. The winner will be announced in our Superstar Assembly on Friday, although Mrs Hands tells me it was very difficult to pick just one winner from all the fantastic wanted posters.

We strut our stuff down the catwalk as we showed off our amazing outfits to the rest of our class and shared the story that our character appears in. The children were brilliant and all cheered each other on which was lovely to see.

A fantastic World Book Day 2022!

World Book Day 2022

 

The Retail Trends Transforming World Book Day | licenseglobal.comIn school today, we celebrated World Book Day. The aim of the day is to celebrate the joy and value of books and the art of reading. Children, and many staff members, attended school dressed as book characters or dressed in their pyjamas and it was very interesting to see the different costumes. Thank you, parents, for your efforts in getting costumes prepared/made. Below are photographs of what each year group and staff looked like. Can you work out the various characters?

 

Children put their World Book Day tokens towards the cost of books at the Usborne Book Fair which was held in the School Hall before and after school. The fayre was very successful and the sale of books totalled an amazing £749.72. This means that the school will receive £449.83 to spend on books which is fantastic! Thank you very much for supporting this.

Usborne Book Fair | Rochester Montessori School

Children within each year group competed against each other to draw a picture and/or complete a piece of writing. Most of the tasks were based on a book that the children had had read to them in class. It was apparent, from looking at all of the entries, that the children put a great deal of thought and effort into this work and it was not an easy task to choose only one winner from each class. Winners will be announced during tomorrow’s Superstars Assembly.

And the winner is... - Girl on the River

Below are a selection of entries from each year group.

 

The Masked Reader was back this year as part of our World Book Day celebrations. Each day, a video has been posted of a member of staff reading an extract from a children’s book. However, the staff member’s face and voice have been disguised. The children have thoroughly enjoyed trying to use the clues given to them to work out who is behind the disguise. Who will tomorrow’s final Masked Reader be?

This year, as with previous years, World Book Day at All Souls was a great success and I would like to thank all those involved – pupils, parents and staff – for your time, efforts and support. The joys and benefits of reading are enormous and we, at All Souls, hope to continue to encourage and enthuse all of our children with above of reading that will last well beyond World Book Day.

Year 4’s World Book Day!

We’ve had a great time celebrating World Book Day in Year 4.

Thank you to all the children and families for their efforts in dressing up as favourite book characters – we were joined by heroes, villains and characters from many classic tales.

Through the day, we were challenged to create a 100 word story based on finding a mysterious key. Check back tomorrow to find out our winner and take a read of their piece of work.

Happy World Book Day!

Happy World Book Day!

Year 6 looked great dressed as their favourite book characters or in their cosy pyjamas.

We have really enjoyed listening to the Masked Readers every day and making our guesses as to whose faces are behind the masks.

This year our competition was to write a 100 word story. There were so many fabulous entries but our class winner was Finn who won a certificate, a book and a voucher to spend on Amazon. Well done, Finn!

Thank you to everyone who took part. Keep reading! 🙂 

World Book Day in Year 2

Year 2 had a lovely time for World Book Day today. We read the story of Stick Man and then wrote postcards pretending to be him for his family. The winner will be announced tomorrow!

Then we made some of our own stick men using sticks from outside!

I have also sent home library registration cards- please can I have these back in by next Thursday so I can take them to the library to be registered on Friday. We will be taking our first trip to the library to borrow a book on the 28th March.

Many thanks for your support!
