World Book Day 2020
To celebrate world book day this year, St Mary's encouraged children to come into school dressed as their favourite book character. We were delighted to see such a wide range and variety of costumes from a vast selection of genres.
Our focus was on fairy tales, inspired by our production of 'The Little Princess' last week. Each class engaged in a fun-filled activity, discovering what fairy tales are, where hey originated from and how they are still being created today.
At the end of the day we all gathered back together in the hall to celebrate our learning and to share the fun that we had had. It was a fantastic day celebrating reading.
At St Mary's we love to read! Each week, years 6 and 5 meet up with their year R or year 1 reading buddies and cosy up with a book. For many of the children, it's one of their favourite times of the week.
At the end of November we held a book fair in the hall. We were delighted with the enthusiasm of both children and parents who came in to purchase some new, exciting books! The book fair will be back again in the new year.
