World Book Day 2019

Thank you to all families who helped create such fantastic World Book Day costumes. Find out more and see more photos here.

We revisited one of our favourite poems for reflection time in assembly. Can you leave a comment below to recommend a book that made you feel like the poet does…?

I Opened a Book – by Julia Donalson

I opened a book and in I strode
Now nobody can find me.
I’ve left my chair, my house, my road,
My town and my world behind me.

I’m wearing the cloak, I’ve slipped on the ring,
I’ve swallowed the magic potion.
I’ve fought with a dragon, dined with a king
And dived in a bottomless ocean.

I opened a book and made some friends.
I shared their tears and laughter
And followed their road with its bumps and bends
To the happily ever after.

I finished my book and out I came.
The cloak can no longer hide me.
My chair and my house are just the same,
But I have a book inside me.

    I recommend the whole Harry Potter series.
    And the sequel.
    And Fantastic Beasts.
    Don’t forget Quidditch Through The Ages!
    And you NEED TO read The Tales Of Beedle The Bard.

    At the end of the weekend, with the floors and table spattered with PVA glue, glitter and disgarded paper and card, it has been worth it. Another year, another chance to wrack your brains with your children as to who and how to represent the character with cheap bits and pieces to be found in the cupboard or garage.
    Come the morning of book day, after a number of abortive attempts to sellotaping the horse hair trousers on we try the emergency string hoping that it doesn’t break Health & Safety Law. A fine job all ’round, what imagination and engineering feats from both children and adults!
