The whole school celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite storybook characters!
During the afternoon, children in Years 1 to 6 were split into their ‘Rainbow Groups’ for a book-themed “Rainbow Afternoon”.
Rainbow groups (named after colours of the rainbow) are each led by a teacher, and contain a mix of children from KS1 and 2. Siblings are placed together in the same group, and this gives them the opportunity to work together.
Each group looked at a different story book and took part in ‘book talk’ linked to SMSC (SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development). After their discussion about what had been read, the children then took part in an activity. All groups thought carefully about the feelings of the characters in their story. Purple group thought about what it might be like to live on their own island, and created a set of rules for their island. Orange group acted out sections of their story, and wondered if the magpie had been right to go with the dog. Yellow group re-told their story with actions and props. Green group acted out their story, with each child taking a different role. Red group thought about the feelings of the family throughout their story, and wrote them a postcard to congratulate them on working together to re-build their house after the flood. Blue group thought about what ‘home’ meant to them.
