World Book Day 2017

March 3, 2017 3:33 pm

Prep school staff and pupils enjoyed a fun-packed day in honour of World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March. All pupils from Reception to Year 8 were invited to come to school dressed as a favourite book character, which helped to raise money for the prep school’s current charity: Cancer Research UK.

The best dressed pupils from each Year 3-8 tutor group gave a fashion parade during assembly, and a panel of judges chose two winners from Upper Prep and two from Middle Prep to receive prizes. The winners were: Fred Lissenden, AKA Grandpa (from ‘Grandpa’s Great Escape’), Maddy Small, AKA Saucepan Man, Leon Hutchings, who was a very convincing Mad Hatter, and Amy Bond as a terrifying Demon Dentist! Lower Prep pupils and their teachers joined the whole school assembly at the end to give a wonderful fashion parade of their own.

Pupils took part in a range of book-themed activities in their English lessons, from Year 3 pupils hunting the school grounds to find Wally, to Year 6 conducting a survey to do with the popularity of bedtime stories, and Year 7 pupils writing their own phonic based books for younger pupils to learn from on i-Pads.  Meanwhile, a competition was launched in the main library, whereby pupils had to work out which books the contents of a set of shoeboxes represented; and a range of other book quizzes and activities were made available.

Thanks are extended to all parents and members of staff who made the day such a huge success.
