World Book Day 2015

Greswold celebrated World Book 2015 in style. All our pupils (and staff) came into school dressed up as characters from books. Some of our governors also joined us to take part in the event. The day started with Mrs Scott leading a whole-school assembly which was a chance to see each others' costumes. Mrs Scott also shared some of her favourite books which included Hairy Maclary, Northern Lights and Charlie Brown's Fifth Super Book of Questions and Answers.


Our older pupils visited our younger pupils read to them. It was great to see the Key Stage 2 pupils acting as role models and sharing books with children in FKS and KS1.


Miss Whiting had also organised a book exchange. Children bought in books they had read and swapped them for another book to enjoy. Thanks to the PTA for helping to support this event.

During the day the children completed different book-related activities. Each year group had different activities planned to make the day special. At the end of the day the children were given a £1 voucher which can be used to buy one of the special World Book Day books or to get £1 off a book at participating book shops.
