World Book Day - 2nd March

As it was World Book Day, we enjoyed dressing up as our favourite book character for the day. We had lots of different characters - all from some of our favourite books including:

  • The Roman Mysteries by Caroline Lawrence
  • The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein
  • Awful Auntie by David Walliams
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
  • Maltilda by Roald Dahl
  • Malory Towers by Enid Bylton

One of our favourite parts of celebrating World Book Day is sharing our books with the younger children. We took our books to Year 1/2 and spend some time reading to our partner and then listening to them read from their book. 

Some of us re-discovered books we had read when we were younger and the younger children experienced some of the lovely books they will be able to read as they get older. 


We are very lucky to have lots of lovely books in our classroom to choose to read. We have all sorts of genres from historical fiction to myths and legends to fantasy and many others.

We were each given a book that we might not have chosen by ourselves and  used the front cover and the blurb to ask and answer questions about what the book might be about, who the main character might be, where and when it is set. We then read the first chapter of our book. 

We shared our thoughts with the class so we now have 24 books that we have reviewed and know something about and some potential new favourite reads. Some of us decided to keep the book we were analysing because we liked the sound of it and are enjoying a book that we might not have chosen previously.
