World Book Day 2017
World Book Day was celebrated in great style this year at Great Milton C of E Primary School!
It started with our annual visit from the Travelling Books company where the children enjoyed perusing the shelves before having an opportunity to purchase their favourites, many using their World Book Day £1 tokens.
Pupils did us proud, as always, by coming into school in wonderful costumes which were celebrated in our World Book Day parade. Everyone loved sharing in each other’s (and their parents’) creativity as we saw everyone from the Mad Hatter, Sherlock Holmes, Broccoli Boy and Mr Twit to Mary Poppins, The Snow Queen, Elmer & Matilda! It was great to also see more less well known characters appear too – characters from Amazon Adventures and Tintin, Adventure Time…… well done! The staff didn’t disappoint either! Mrs. Frost lit up the school dressed as a character from Aliens Love Underpants, Elf Owls staff were a vision of colour as characters from The Hungry Caterpillar and there were some pretty scary witches and Mrs Twit lurking about too!
Teachers swapped classrooms reading favourite books to other classes, and the whole school enjoyed some fabulous quiet reading time together in the hall, enjoying the books from which the characters they came to school as, come from. It was a special time.
SOS……………….Imaginations please!……………….SOS…………Imaginations please!……….
There was also an SOS call from Miss Robinson (aka Alex Ryder) and Professor Higgins!!
A mysterious egg has been found on the edge of Shotover Park and Professor Higgins is enlisting the help of Great Milton Cof E Primary School children to try to identify what it might be? It doesn’t appear to be of any currently known species on earth so please students, help us find out what it might be? What might hatch from this curious egg? What might it lead to? What can we expect……..? All ideas (as imaginative as possible please!!) to be in to Miss Robinson by Friday 10th March!!!
The day ended with the Eagle Owls’ assembly where many classic books were shared. The children in our school love reading and we hope our celebrations have inspired them to read even more!
