year 1 world book day!

Year 1 had a fantastic time on World Book Day 2019! We enjoyed dressing up as our favourite book characters and celebrating the wonder of books and stories.

In the morning we all went into the hall with Miss Thompson and Miss Starr for a story telling session. We listened to 'The Slightly Annoying Elephant' by David Williams which is about a boy called Sam who signs up at the Zoo to adopt an elephant. What he doesn't know is that in the small print it says that the elephant must come and live with him! After that we showcased our costumes so that the grown ups could choose the most creative costume. It was a very difficult choice for Miss Thompson and Miss Holland. After much deliberation the teachers chose Filip, who was dressed as Sirius Black. Miss Thompson and Miss Holland were particularly impressed with Filip's black curly hair and beard, not to mention the tattoo's! At lunch time we had a World Book Day School Dinner, it was delicious! With our tummies full,  in the afternoon we listened to 'Aliens love Underpants' and designed our very own pants! At the end of the day we had a World Book Day assembly where we watched Filip claim his prize! Filip was thrilled to win the competition and we were all very proud of him.

We had a fantastic World Book Day, we hope you did too.

Take a look at some of our costumes in the GALLERY!
