It’s set to be a real page-turner at Silverdale Primary Academy this Thursday (2nd March), as the school celebrates World Book Day.
The usual uniform will be swapped for more colourful creations, with children and staff recreating characters from their favourite books and taking part in a variety of literary themed activities.
In nursery and reception, the children will be designing Mr Men and Little Miss characters, whilst in Years 1 and 2, the pupils will be producing their own storybook. In Years 3 to 6, the children have already been tasked with writing their own 500 word story, with a prize for the winner of the best piece of prose.
There will also be follow-up activities, with a ‘Booky Bake’ on Friday, where the parents of nursery and reception pupils will be invited to come in and read with their children, enjoying a piece of cake at the same time!
Commented Lindi Nejrup, Headteacher at Silverdale Primary Academy:
“Literacy is an incredibly important part of the curriculum and World Book Day is a wonderful way of highlighting that, helping bring so many of these colourful characters to life and encouraging our children to read even more.”
