Today we celebrated World Book Day in school.
Thank you to everyone that bought in a book from home to share with a friend, a classmate or teacher. I hope you enjoyed sharing stories with one another.
The quizzes went well with children in KS1 and KS2 taking part (in separate quizzes), who knew what amazing knowledge of books the children have and competitiveness too!
Miss Whiteley shared her favourite stories from when she was little, Little Anna and the Tall Uncle and Tikki Tikki Tembo with classes that came to the Library. The children particularly enjoyed the second story probably because they like trying to say Tikki Tikki Tembo’s full name which was Tikki Tikki Tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo. Now that is a long name!
This year our theme is Share a Story.
Children are invited to bring in a book from home that they would like to share with a friend, a classmate, their teacher or perhaps even someone from another class or year.
Amongest other celebrations in the classroom, there will be separate WBD quizzes for KS1 and KS2 children where children will be playing in teams, Miss Whiteley will be sharing lots of stories during library sessions and every child will be given a World Book Day voucher which can be swapped for a World Book Day Book*.
*Books are available in Sainsbury (Moor Allerton), The Little Bookshop (Chapel Allerton) and branches of Waterstones and other participating retailers.
World Book Day is almost here!
We will be celebrating all things bookish on Thursday 7th March.
As part of the celebrations everyone will receive a World Book Day voucher which you can use to claim your special World Book Day Book from participating bookshops and supermarkets.
The books this year are:
More information about the other celebrations will follow soon.
In this morning’s assembly Miss Whiteley announced the winner of the Where’s Wally Scavenger Hunt.
Nobody found all the Wallys (there were 17 in total) but four children found 16 of them so their names were put into a ‘hat’ and the winner was………

Congratulations to Gurleen who won a Where’s Wally tin containing 3 Where’s Wally books.
Today school celebrated World Book Day and both children and staff were invited to come dressed as Wally or Wenda.
