In Reception for World Book Day 2017 we wrote about our favourite stories, designed a book token and acted out parts of different story books.
This year for World Book Day, we focused on the story of Peter Pan. We made head pieces to get into character, hot seating and designed our own Neverland. We also took part in the character trail around the school.
On Monday 27th February, we had a special visitor in school. It was the CODEX 3000 book. This book was made to celebrate 1300 years since the original CODEX 3000 book was made by monks from the North East.
Our school was asked to contribute and last year's Year 5 (current Year 6) wrote a verse that was published in the new CODEX 3000.
We had the opportunity to look after the book for a day and will be receiving our own copy soon.
