Book Week

3rd March 23

‏For our World Book Week this year we focused on the theme ‘You Are A Reader’.  We had special English lessons focussing on reading and how we can explore different books that we all love. As part of our celebrations, we were lucky enough to welcome two authors to The Prep; Anne Chapman, who is a local author, came to speak with Reception-Year 4 pupils about a story she has written called ‘Tales from Africa’ and Sarah Hagger-Holt, author of ‘Proud of Me’ and ‘Nothing Ever Happens Here’ visited Years 5-8 pupils.

‏We loved gathering as a whole school to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March.  The costume parade was a huge success with a variety of characters from all types of books – the sports hall has never looked so colourful. Classes were also busy decorating their classroom doors in the theme of a book or author and we are looking forward to announcing the winning door next week!

‏‏We held a ‘Bake a Book’ cake sale in the Pre-Prep on Friday, thank you to all the parents who donated their time and talent in creating some amazing book cakes from ‘Mr Bump’ to ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and helping raise money for more library books.

‏‏What an action packed World Book Week we had!
