Wonderful World Book Day

posted 14 Mar 2017, 09:22 by Tetherdown Primary
On 2nd March 2017, an exciting event took place across the world. Lots of schools celebrated World Book Day. Our school, Tetherdown Primary School, took part in a national competition that thousands of other schools entered as well. Everyone who took part in this competition was asked to create a whole school display inspired by the imaginative story ‘A Child of Books’ by Oliver Jeffers and beautifully illustrated by Sam Winston.

Using our school vision statement “Where friendships thrive and children learn to discover a world of possibilities”, we began to explore how we could create a display that showed our passion and use of creative imaginations. ‘A Child of Books’ was a perfect starting point as we were inspired by the imaginative use of writing in the illustrations. This immediately motivated and excited all of us providing a purpose for our individual pieces for the whole school display. We explored the use of the written word in our topics, reading and engaging with a variety of texts.

Amazingly, we came runner up in the national competition along with quite a few other schools. It was announced in a special assembly by the kind and caring Miss Sweeney. After the brilliant news was announced, we had a fashion show to display our creative, imaginative costumes.

Overall, we had an exciting, enjoyable day and will continue to read lots of books to inspire our writing and learning.
