World Book Day

World Book Day - 2nd March 2023

Indio and Brimley Reception Children had a great day sharing their favourite stories, dressed up in character.

Here are some of their comments about their favourite stories and reading

We have decorated our door with our favourite stories. We drew our favourite characters ourselves.

Quotes from some of the children about why they enjoy reading, and World Book Day.



It is fun to learn new words. I like reading and seeing what a book is about. I also love being read to at bedtime. World Book Day  is good because you can dress up as anyone you like, I'm Cinderella's fairy godmother.



I like reading books because you can find out things in a non fiction book,  and feel like you are part of a story in a fiction book.  World Book Day  is good because you can dress up as your favourite character, I've come as Janet from 'The Secret Seven'.  



I like reading Horrid Henry books because they are funny.  It is really interesting to read as you find out new things.  World Book Day is good because you can dress up as your favourite characters, I've come as 'The Tiger who came for Tea'.



I like reading because it is interesting to find out new things.  When I read I like to use my imagination.    World Book Day is really good because you can dress up as anything.  I've come as Baby Yoda from 'Star Wars'. 



I like finding out new things in non fiction books and I like fiction books like the Famous five.  I have dressed up as Anne from the Famous Five.  I like bringing books in from home and sharing them with my friends at school. . 



I like reading because if a book without pictures  as when I read the words  it paints a picture in my mind.  I like World  Book Day  because you don't need to wear school uniform.

Hawkmoor, Pullabrook and Reddaford Enjoyed World Book day!

We loved dressing up and reading our books.  On our doors, we added some book reviews of our favourite books so others could enjoy them too.  Here are some pictures.
