World Book DayPosted: 29th March 2019
A book bonanza gave children an opportunity to indulge in literacy.
Little Parndon Primary Academy invited pupils and their parents along to a book swap as part of World Book Day.
Hot chocolate and treats encouraged families to enjoy some reading, while pupils were able to make bookmarks or be inspired by recordings of author Michael Rosen performing his stories.
Pupils also took on the storybox challenge and depicted their favourite stories in a shoe box and guessed which teacher had covered their face to read aloud a story.
Kirstie Clark, head of school, said: “It was great to have our parents come in to swap books and read with their children. It’s important for us all to show children how much fun reading can be and that they can share it with their friends and family.”
