World Book Day Fun Thursday, March 5th, 2015
World Book Day inspired some fantastic costumes so congratulations to everyone for making such a great effort. Enjoy reading your World Book Day books and keep on reading!
Book Week was packed full of exciting and memorable book related activities so that our children associate reading with enjoyment and pleasure.
To celebrate World Book Day, every child dressed up as a pirate. The costumes were wonderful and Staff were thrilled by the fantastic effort made by everyone so many thanks to all our parents for supporting this event so enthusiastically.
Every class throughout the school based their work for World Book Day on the theme of Pirates. Each class completed a range of lively Literacy and fun cross-curricular activities inspired by the theme. The children have loved the topic and have created some fantastic memories to mark World Book Day and their time at Padiham Primary School.
On the day, each child received a World Book Day book of their choice to encourage them to read for pleasure. Two children from each class received a book prize based on the theme of Pirates and a booty bag packed with treasure.
We are holding a Scholastic Book Fair next week so look out for next week's newsletter to find out more information about the event.
Children in KS2 are once again taking part in Read for my School, a national reading competition to encourage children to develop a love of reading. Winners will be chosen from each class in the next few weeks. Keep on reading - it could be you!
