World Book Day

Children at HJS celebrate their love of reading

Any excuse to dress up!

In spite of the Beast From The East and Storm Emma, children and staff made the effort to dress up as book characters to celebrate World Book Day. The snow and freezing temperature meant that we had to stay inside all day, but that didn't dampen our spirits in the slightest. Children enjoyed browsing the Book Fair, designing covers for their favourite books and sharing stories together. In assembly, we shared a picture book from Uganda and compared our daily routine with that of a Ugandan school child. Quite a difference, and not just because of the weather!

Here is a small selection of the characters that came to school today. Can you recognise who they are?
