World Book Day 2018 at Hazelwood was one to remember this year. Children dressed up as their favourite characters from their favourite book. Children discussed why they had chosen this character and reasons why they chose it. In addition to this, children showed off their wow words from their book- in style. They visually displayed these new words on their costumes in creative ways of their choice. This was linked to our vocabulary project called The Power of Words. This task allowed children to also explore new vocabulary. Children showed a fantastic understanding of their adventurous words by knowing the definition and sharing it with the class.
The children also took part in ‘Build a Story’ that was written throughout the week. The Mega Oak, The Mega Maple or The Mega Rowan Story was written together with their peers in all three Tree Houses. Our theme this year was based on a prop which stimulated children’s imagination. Children also included our school values within the story. Please see attached Mega stories.
In the afternoon, the children had fun listening to stories told and read by other children in different year groups. Both keys stages loved every single minute.
Traditionally, the bell rang at unexpected times throughout the day to mark ‘Stop and Read Time’, signalling everyone to stop what they were doing and pull out their books for five minutes reading time. Children had their favourite reading book for this activity.
Overall, World Book Day 2018 was a fun-packed day in the snow. The kids as well the staff enjoyed it thoroughly.
