World Book Day 2014

Year 3
Inspired by our collective love of Adam Blake’s Beast Quest, the focus of our day was … BEASTS! We explored the different BEASTS from the epic series and linked the features of their bodies and their behaviour to our ever expanding scientific knowledge. Our task was to create a beast, which would be able to live on the islands that we have created in our art project. We needed to consider their diet, appearance, behaviour and habitat in order for them to survive. We came up with terrifying beasts, which will now form the basis of our factual reports, as well as our own Beast Quest stories! In the afternoon, we enjoyed a roundabout of activities including word games, drama and a cosy read! Well done Year 3 for a fantastic day’s grappling!

Year 4 celebrated World Book Day with a bang!
Characters were quizzed, poems were crafted and points were gained in our mammoth World Book Day quiz!  For example do you know the name of the wizard at King Arthur’s court?  How about the name of the character who stole Christmas in a Dr Seuss book?  Or the author who created Tracy Beaker?

We hope you enjoy a sample of our poems below and hopefully the photos give you an insight in to what a great day we had.  Thank you for your support.

Year 5
Wow! What an epic day. After exploring the many amazing characters and having our very own fashion parade, year 5 spent the morning making an extremely tough decision. Which scene to create for our ‘Tyrannosaurus Tate’ competition? A children’s book being written by local author-Farah Downing. After precisely researching the relevant settings and characters, the design and production stages took place and the results were fantastic. See for yourself below. Our days learning ended with a relaxing and social story time together with a reflection on this year’s world book day learning!  We would like to thank all parents and carers for their efforts making the super costumes!

Year 6
In year 6 we totally embraced World Book day. There were some fantastic costumes on display ranging from characters from Dr Seuss to an array of mythical beings straight out of Middle Earth. We based the entire day’s learning around books and reading. In Maths we calculated the mean, mode and median from Jaqueline Wilson books. Our English learning saw us rewriting well known traditional tales with a twist (think Cinderella but set in space!). To top the day off, we applied our recent art learning to produce line sketches of our characters. Why not pop in to class 8 and 9 to see some examples?

    Although I wasn’t there I heard that there were some great costumes like Mario and Puss In Boots. Wish I had been there to witness it for myself!

    I loved World book day because every one had epic costumes like ‘Where’s Wally?’, ‘Mario’ and ‘Harry Potter’ characters: every one looked great.

    All of the schools costumes were EPIC but in our year group (year five) we had a few ‘Where’s Wally and some Little Red Riding hoods…. I dressed up as Verruca Salt From Charlie and the chocolate factory. I really enjoyed it. We also did Tyrannosaurus Tate- a book we are illustrating.
