World Book Day at St. Joseph’s was a great success! Everyone rose to the challenge of dressing up and we saw some incredible costumes from children and staff!
Throughout the whole week a number of book focused activities were held. The week began with the author M.P. Robertson joining us for the day, beginning with a whole school assembly and then holding workshops with all the classes. He has written many children’s favourites including The Egg and The Great Dragon Rescue. His day began with a wonderful whole school assembly and he then went on to lead drawing workshops with all our children, with everyone creating wonderful dragon drawings.
World Book day on Thursday saw us all dressed up as favourite book characters. Mr Stevens, one of our parents, came in to tell our older children all about being an author. He’s written books, such as The Mapmaker’s Monsters and the children were keen to know all about the editing and the re-drafting that a writer has to do.
Thank you to all who made the week special – allowing us all to celebrate books and authors. Special thanks to our PTA for helping to fund the week and to our teachers, Mrs Dayantis, Mrs Walls and Mrs Corallo for organising the activities. We hope it was a memorable week for the children and enhanced their love of books and reading.
