On Thursday 2nd March we celebrated this special day in school by sharing extracts from many books written by famous authors including Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling and David Walliams (to name but a few).
Each class took part in reading challenges and book quizzes about the main characters, plots and settings. Some children created their own story of “The Way Back Home”, in the style of Oliver Jeffers. Others chose to look at factual books to gather information in subjects they are particularly interested in.
All pupils took part in the World Book Day activities on our Frog Learn site throughout the day – taking part in polls, surveys, discussion forum and sharing our favourite books.
Staff shared extracts from their favourite childhood novels in our school assembly. This left some pupils wanting to know more, encouraging them to read the book for themselves.

Although Y5&6 were in London on their residential, they didn’t forget about World Book day! Lots of children found as many opportunities as possible to sneak 5 or 20 minutes with their favourite books – children were caught reading with Dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum, catching up on a chapter or two at the The Rainforest Café and even outside the theatre!
Of course we finished our day by celebrating with one of Roald Dahl’s most famous book worms – Matilda! During our stay we posted our images on the @frogeducation #frogbooks competition for World Book Day – they went down a storm!
