World Book Day 2017

World Book Day 2017


At St Cuthbert's we love books! To help us celebrate World Book Day all of the children and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters. In the morning we had an assembly and a winner was picked from each class for the best costume.

In class, children spent lots of time reading books and sharing their favourite books with others. Some classes made bookmarks and wrote stories to share with younger children. Year 6 answered Maths problems based on books and Year 1 went to the 'Book Shop' in class to buy some new books. All of the children in school were also able to hunt for Wally who was hiding around our corridors. KS2 also had a go at the mannequin challenge, take a look, it's brilliant.

Reading fun!

To finish off our fantastic day we had some story time with a difference. Lots of the adults around school mixed around the classrooms to share a story they enjoyed reading with a class that isn't their own. There were stories about dinosaurs and monsters being read, with lots of great sound effects.
