Today was the 25th anniversary of World Book Day! To celebrate, the children came to school dressed as their favourite character along with their favourite story book. All their costumes were amazing and the children enjoyed sharing their favourite story with their friends.
We began the day with a whole school assembly where all the children got to show off their costumes and they learnt all about the importance of reading and what World Book Day represents.
We then spilt into groups and took part in different activities around school. We made bookmarks and bookmark monsters, painted a self portrait of our character and decorated hero masks. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day!
At Combs, we are always keen to share and promote our love of stories and reading and in the words of Frederick Douglass “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free!
