On Friday 6th March, we celebrated World Book Day at St. Chad’s. As part of our alms-giving for Lent, the children and staff gave a donation to Father Hudson’s Good Shepherd Appeal, in exchange for being able to come to school dressed as their favourite book character.
Our celebration of reading began at our usual Friday morning praise assembly. Some of the teachers acted out the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, the children and parents seemed to enjoy their performance!
After assembly the children completed World Book Day related activities in their classrooms. They also had to listen out for bells throughout the day, which was a signal for them to ‘DEAR’ (drop everything and read).
At the end of the day the children were all given their World Book Day vouchers, which we hope they will enjoy spending on a new book.
