As part of World Book Day, the children and staff of Cairn Primary enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters from their chosen books.
Each class, including the nursery, took part in lots of fun activities such as creating new characters, making up book quizzes, designing bookmarks, going outside to collect sticks to make the stick man and building houses for the three little pigs!
The older children enjoyed writing fairy tales for the younger classes and the children especially enjoyed sharing the stories they had brought into school.
Everyone had a fantastic day celebrating the joy of reading which is celebrated worldwide.
World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
This is the 20th year there’s been a World Book Day, and on 2nd March 2017 children of all ages came together to appreciate reading. Very loudly and very happily. The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. That’s why we will be sending schools (including those nurseries and secondary schools that have specially registered to participate), packs of Book Tokens and age-ranged World Book Day Resource Packs (age-ranged into Nursery/Pre-School, Primary and Secondary) full of ideas and activities, display material and more information about how to get involved in World Book Day.
