Broughton World Book Day 2018

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you will learn, the more places you will go! 

-Dr Seuss

This year's Work Book Day was our best yet! The children and staff all put in 100% effort with their costumes and the school was transformed into a fictional world, full of Oopma-Loompas, Harry Potter, Mrs Twit, Cat in the name the character....we had them here!


To make the day extra special, we split the children in to mixed age groups (Y3-Y6) to participate in a variety of creative activities, inspired by books! Throughout the day, the children; created nonsense rhymes after reading Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose by Julia Donaldson, practised performance poetry inspired by The Charge of the Light Brigade by Tennyson, invented their own robots after reading Robot Stop! by Adam Bestwick, illustrated The Book with No Pictures by B.J.Novak and much, much more! 


It was a pleasure to see the children working so well together, with Year 6 supporting the younger ones during the activities. There was a really creative 'buzz' around the school and the staff successfully inspired the children, introducing them to eight new texts to develop their imagination.
