World Book Day 2016

Published April 28, 2016 by Bookclub

Here we are at this year’s World Book Day!


As well as dressing up as our favourite characters, we made our own i-movie, which we presented at the Junior School Assembly and we ran lots of activities at lunchtime in the Library, for everyone to join in!


We made sure that everybody in school got a free book, or a £1 token to spend at a bookshop.


We allocated everybody into the 4 “Harry Potter” houses, using our very own Sorting Hat.


All of our quizzes, wordsearches and competitions were taken very seriously!

Another great World Book Day!  Now, what shall we plan for next year???

Here we all are in our World Book Day costumes (minus one, who had to rush off for a Drama rehearsal.)

We worked really hard all day, to make it a fantastic day for everyone in the Junior School. We began by running our own Assembly, in which we talked about what we do in Book Club, the books we have enjoyed and invited everyone to come to the Library at lunch time for fun activities and competitions.

We were all kept really busy through the lunch break, handing out wordsearches, quizzes and drawing activities on Horrid Henry, Wimpy Kid and Jacqueline Wilson and giving out the special World Book Day books and £1 vouchers to everyone.

Everyone dressed up, including all the teachers – here are our Librarians getting in on the act!

We had a great day, but the fun still continues! You all have until lunch this Thursday, 12 March, to submit your entries for our drawing competition based on “There’s a Lion in My Cornflakes”.  We will be judging the entries and choosing prizes at our next Book Club meeting!

World Book Day 2015

Published February 26, 2015 by Bookclub

We are getting excited about World Book Day, which is next Thursday, 5 March 2015.

The celebrations started early this week, when we joined 400 other local schoolchildren at Nottingham Playhouse, for “The Biggest Book Show on Earth on Tour” show, hosted by Steven Butler, author of “The Diary of Dennis the Menace”.

We were entertained by talks, jokes and illustrations from Steve Cole (“Magic Ink”), Jim Smith (“Barry Loser”), Lydia Monks (“Aaaaarrgghh Spider!”) and Jonathan Meres (“World of Norm”) and we each bought a signed book of our choice.

Now we are getting on with our planning for World Book Day next week, in our Library.

What are you doing for World Book Day?  Are you dressing up as your favourite character?  If so, who will you choose?
