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.
This week the club members continued with their graphic novel, wrote book reviews, started a Leeds Book Awards Display and held a heated discussion about one of the shortlisted books; Dragon Daughter which ended in a drama duel!
On Wednesday 54 children from Years 5 and 6 spent the evening at ‘Hogwarts’. Upon arrival the sorting hat decided which house they would each be in. Then each house led by a Professor visited a carousel of activities; they held owls, read extracts from Harry Potter books, searched for clues to complete the Maraurder’s Map Scavenger Hunt, visited Honeydukes, had their faces painted and even created potions!
House points were awarded and at the end of the evening once assembled back in the Great Hall the winning House was named…….
Thank you to all the children for attending this event and a special big thank you to all the staff that helped.
On Wednesdays after school Miss Whiteley is running a Book Club for children in Year 5 and Year 6.
At our very first meeting the children decided who would like to participate in the Leeds Book Awards and who wanted to work on a project.
Seven children decided that they wanted to sign up for the Leeds Book Awards and chose the first book to read while the other four children decided that they would like to create their own graphic novel. They looked through comics and graphic novels in the library for inspiration and then started to plan their own.
The second half of the meeting was spent playing a game of guess who’s book.
