Dress up for World Book day!
Thursday, 3 March, 2016
Preparation for World Book Day -Thursday 3rd March
On this day we ask the children to dress up to come to school (if they wish). Each class has chosen a book/ favourite author to concentrate on. The children may dress up in a character from the book the class are looking at, or a character of their own choice. The children may also bring in their favourite book to share with class members. I will send details about the book fair later, thank you to Mrs Kathy McIntyre for arranging this.
A note from the class teachers……
Reception will look at the ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell and other books by the same author.
Year 1 will be looking at Roald Dahl. They will read ‘The Twits’ during the day and the children will create some writing and artwork based on the book.
Year 2 will be reading The Twits. They will be looking at all the amazing vocabulary in the story and using ideas to write descriptions of characters. Children will then use their imagination to come up with their own ghastly tricks to play on Mr and Mrs Twit!
Year 3 In celebration of one of our favourite book studies this year, Year 3 will be invited to dress as characters from ‘Leon and the Place Between’ by Graham Baker-Smith. Set in a circus, come as a favourite act. Alternatively, you could be the adventurous Leon or the mysterious magician Abdul Kazam! Do you dare to re-enter the place between?
Year 4 For this year’s ‘World Book Day’ we plan to focus upon ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. Aside from a whole class guided reading session we will discuss prominent events within the text whilst identifying unfamiliar words. A range of activities will follow such as writing a diary entry, creating a list of arguments ‘for’ and ‘against’ Bertie’s family keeping the lion cub and maybe some drama to re-enact events.
Year 5 will be focusing on the novel ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. The book follows the story of a boy from England who tries to sail around the work with his parents, only to find himself shipwrecked and seemingly alone on a desert island.
Year 6 will be choosing a book to read over the holidays – a book they would like to ‘recommend to a friend’. After the holidays the children will be writing and publishing a book review about it and researching a chosen author. They will be finding out about what inspires them, how and where they write. They will take part in the World book day quiz and design a world book day token to enter the national competition.
