On Thursday 5th March Colsterworth Primary School was once again buzzing with the excitement of another World Book Day where children and adults alike have the opportunity to spend the whole day celebrating a love for reading. From Willy Wonka to Harry Potter, all the children were dressed to impress and even Tweedledee and Tweedledum made an appearance!
The theme of this year’s World Book Day was ‘Share a Million Stories’ so the children were treated to extracts from the teacher’s favourite stories and then spent time visiting each other’s classrooms to share stories.
The excitement didn’t stop there as there were prizes galore, kindly donated by Grantham Book Services. Of course, there was the annual ‘best dressed’ competition and also a ‘design a potato character’ where the entries wowed the judges!
Miss Aldiss, Year 3 Teacher and English lead said, ‘It has been wonderful to see the whole school bursting with enthusiasm for World Book Day! As teachers, we naturally try to promote a love of reading throughout the year, but World Book Day is always an extra special opportunity for everyone to come together and enjoy their favourites!’
