If you ventured into St Mark’s on Monday, you will have noticed that everyone appeared to be someone else! Yes, it was World Book Day and the children and staff filled the school with many characters from a range of books and brought them to life.
If you visited the office, you may have been greeted by Professor Umbridge, Wally or Snow white!
The whole school came dressed as magnificent characters from their favourite stories!
We enjoyed an exciting World Book Day assembly, allowing all the children (and staff!) to parade their fantastic characters - from Charlie Bucket and Willy Wonka to Peter from the Railway Children and Dorothy from Wizard of Oz!
We then enjoyed a session looking around the book fair (which will be after school Monday-Thursday this week). The children enjoyed looking round to spot a 'good read'! The afternoon was led by all the staff and the children signed up to stories they wanted to hear read aloud.
All classrooms decorated their doors during the day with a book theme -winner to be announced! They were VERY creative. Well done everyone!
Most importantly, the day allowed the children further opportunities to demonstrate their love for reading and all children were presented with their £1 book token which, of course, you can use at the fair towards a book!
