Year One have really enjoyed World Book Day. There were lots of fantastic book characters and costumes to celebrate some of our favourite stories. Our classroom door was themed around ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak. After sharing the story together, we created a puppet show to retell the story with our partners.
One of the many highlights of the day was being visited by Year 5 who sat with us and read stories. Every book being read was different and it was really great hearing everyone talking about their characters and favourite parts of the stories.
Inspired by meeting a real life author in assembly, Year One spent their afternoon making books of their own, writing and illustrating. They turned their ideas into amazing real life books!
