World Book Day 2022

We had a brilliant time celebrating World Book Day at Lantern Lane this year!

 

Miss Harbey and Miss Waggett started off the day by holding a virtual whole school assembly where we thought about why World Book Day is celebrated, completed a character quiz and had the poem ‘Please Mrs Butler’ read to us – a super poem for our school in particular! We then found out what we would be doing throughout the day…

 

We all enjoyed seeing some new faces during ‘Rhyme Time’ when the teachers swapped classes to share poems. Mr Thomas was making some really silly voices in Year 1 and Miss Mistry had Miss Harbey’s class dreaming of chocolate cake!

 

An exciting part of the day was when we all contributed to our own classroom ‘Story Doors’. We were set the task of decorating our doors in a way that represents one of our favourite story time books or our whole class reading text. Here are all our entries…

Mrs Jennison, the English governor, came to judge the competition and she was really excited to get back into school to see us. She had a tough job as we all did so well, but she chose her 2 winners:

 

For EYFS/KS1, the winner was… Foundation 1 with ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Mrs Jennison loved all the learning that had taken place connected to the popular story.

 

For KS2, the winner was… Mrs Halliwell and Miss Bowe’s class with ‘A Mummy Ate My Homework’. Mrs Jennison loved the interactive buttons on the door and all the details the children had added.

 

 By 3pm, it was time for ‘Everyone’s A Reader’. Everyone in the school stopped and enjoyed a story (either with an adult or independently) to remind us that everybody can – and should – enjoy reading. It was very calm around school.

 

As well as all this excitement, Year 6 also visited the library. They loved getting their library cards and choosing a few books each. Here are some pictures of what they got up to:

Here’s what Year 6 said about their trip out of school…

I found some really good books - it was better than reading the same ones I have at home. I really like going there and I'd like to renew my books to read them for longer.

It was very exciting - there were so many interesting books to choose from.

I love the books that I've found at the library. I have wanted to read books like this for ages so I was so glad that school took us there.
