On Thursday 5th March, our school celebrated world book day by dressing up as characters from books. There were a variety of characters such as: Where’s Wally, Harry Potter, Maleficent, Horrid Henry, Alex Rider and James Bond. We thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day and the activities held included; re-writing The Day the Crayons Quit and writing letters to Duncan (The owner of the crayons in the book) and colouring familiar things with different colours. We also visited the newly refurbished library- The Whispering Woodland. It was themed around a forest and had a variety of seating and decoration. It contained many new books and will make a great revision centre and reading lounge. There is also a charity event: this is a sponsored read that helps raise money to help get books for children who suffer from a variety of illnesses. Overall, World Book Day was a wonderful experience and I would take great pleasure in participating in this event again. The following pages contain a selection of photos of the day.

Year 1 and 2 read The Day the Crayons Quit then completed a mixture of activities which included: writing their own letters as Duncan back to the crayons, writing speech bubbles of what the crayons may have said to each other, using the crayons to complete a collage and they also read the sequel called The Day the Crayons Came Home, which they loved.
In Foundation, we decided to try and write our our version of 'The Day the Crayons Quit' using things from around the classroom to inspire us. We had a lovely time reading different books throughout the day and sharing what we liked about them. Here is an example of one of our letters!
This is your sad coats that need a rest. We are fed up of being dirty. We quit! We would love to be clean because we are never clean. How about a lovely walk instead of leaving us on the floor?
