同乐城官网 www.xyqp168.com On the run up to World Book Day on Thursday 7th March, the Pre-Prep School spent the week celebrating their favourite children’s stories.
On Monday, author and illustrator Clara Vulliamy ran workshops with all the girls to help them to create their very own characters. The girls’ imaginations ran wild and they loved hearing all about Dotty Detective and her dog McClusky.
Storyteller Jan Blake came to visit on Tuesday and the girls were enchanted by the tales that Jan told.
On Wednesday the girls enjoyed their walk to Village Books where they listened to stories and chose their own book with their World Book Day vouchers.
World Book Day itself was on the Thursday and the school hall was awash with colour at the start of the day as the girls dressed up as characters from their favourite books. There was a huge variety of costumes to reflect the enormous enthusiasm for books among the pupils – Little Red Riding Hood, Mary Poppins, Harry Potter, Cat in the Hat and Willy Wonka all featured. The girls particularly enjoyed seeing their teachers dressed up as Mr Men & Little Miss characters!
Finally, to end the week the girls loved inviting their parents in to school for some reading in class. They were able to share their favourite stories with one another, and we’re sure that some of the parents even enjoyed it more than their daughters!
