Once again we celebrated World Book Day at ‘The Squirrels’ and had an exciting day! This year the theme was ‘Stories from Around the World’ to link with this term’s global theme and was a great success! It built on all the information and activities undertaken in our exciting ‘Around the World’ day, held before half-term and enabled children to learn more about stories from other cultures.
We had many wonderful new global books to share and children took part in some exciting linked activities – such as going on a safari finding African animals hidden around the school, acting out stories and even sharing books in other languages! In the afternoon we enjoyed reading with ‘buddies’ from other year groups – including some visitors from Year 8 in the Prep School, rounding off a wonderful day!
