World Book Day

World Book Day 2021 Highlights
 
Thank you to all the staff, parents and children for making our first 'virtual' World Book Day such a success. The family challenge, class World Book Day Zoom calls, virtual author visits in conjunction with Our Bookshop, Tring and the special video from our staff bookworms all added to the celebrations! (See the World Book Day Assembly on eSchools for the Staff Bookworms video)
 
Many families and children joined in with the Family Challenge based on our theme...
'Be inspired to read' 
With book themed cooking, special reading dens and chairs, poetry, acting out stories, design a reading superhero and much, much more.
Here are some of the wonderful results of World Book Day Family Challenges enjoyed by children at home and in school...
Thank you to Our Bookshop, Tring for inviting us to take part in their special author events.  Reception and KS1 were treated to two story readings and an art class with the hilarious author, comedian and illustrator Olaf Falafel.  During the question and answer session we were excited and proud to hear one of the questions sent in by a child in Windmills class being put to Olaf. Please see the link below to watch a recording of the event on YouTube.  
Our duck illustrations from the art class with Olaf Falafel inspired by his book 'Old MacDonald heard a parp'... 
Key Stage 2 children also took part in the virtual session with local author Hannah Gold who launched her first book, The Last Bear.  If you missed this session please click on the link below to watch the World Book Day special launch. 
 
Our Bookshop, Tring are continuing to offer live author events to local families and children and we look forward to joining in with some more sessions in the future. What a lovely opportunity for children to see and hear from the authors behind the books.
