World Book was celebrated in a variety of ways at Bowburn Infant and Nursery School!
Each year group was invited to come to school dressed as a character from their author of the term.
Nursery children and staff wore clothes based on Aliens love underpants. They enjoyed a variety of activities ranging from making play dough aliens to washing and hanging out the pants! The children had great fun decorating Miss Noble’s underpants!
Shrimps and Minnows came dressed as Park Keepers and Gardeners as their books are the Percy the Park Keeper series.
Starfish and Seahorses were dressed in a myriad of colours depicting Elmer the Elephant. Their Literacy and Numeracy tasks included writing about elephants and colouring complicated patterns on Elmer!
Sharks and Dolphins classes were filled with many Roald Dahl characters. Their focus book is The Twits but several Matilda’s, some Willy Wonkas and Umpa lumpas worked alongside Several BFG’s, a Mugglewump and a Grand High Witch!
Each child in the school was given a book to take home to commemorate World Book Day 2016.
