We have had lots of fun celebrating World Book Day this week.
We all came to school dressed up as our favourite book characters. We had lots of princesses and superheroes! The best costumes won a book as a prize!
We visited our new school library and each took out a book to take home. In the afternoon an author came to school to tell us a special story, we joined in with the actions and helped to tell the story. It was very funny and even made us jump sometimes!
At the end we got to talk about the stories we liked best and we asked lots of questions about stories and our favourite characters. We even learnt that some of our favourite Disney movies were based on old stories.
There was a competition for every class to decorate their classroom doors. At the start of the week we wrote a list of our favourite stories then we took a vote to decide which story we would like to decorate our door as. The vote was definitely for jungles and monkeys so we chose ‘Walking through the jungle’.
We searched the cupboard and classroom for jungle things then drew some pictures of our own, added faces to monkeys and collaged the jungle background. We were very proud of our decorating…
We love stories and story telling in nursery and had lots of fun for World Book Day. Why not keep the fun going at home?
You could use your book day token to buy a £1 book or put it towards another book.
You could dress up at home and carry on telling stories.
Visit the local library for lots of fun story telling. There are always lots of events happening, especially in the school holidays.
Read a story everyday. Don’t forget there are lots of books in nursery for you to take home or for even more stories why not visit the local library?
