World Book Day 2023


On Thursday 2nd of March children at Chapelford Village Primary School celebrated World Book Day!


Children were invited to dress up as their own character that they had created. This gave our children chance to use their imagination and combine all their favourite books and character traits! As a school we place developing a passion and love of reading at the heart of our curriculum - so celebrated the day in style! All classes participated within several 'Drop and Read' sessions throughout the day allowing children to share their love of reading with their friends and teachers! 


As part of the celebrations, children participated within a variety of writing and reading opportunities throughout the day. EYFS and Year 1 children enjoyed turning their World Book Day outfit into a story spoon and writing character descriptions. Year 2 enjoyed creating their own versions of 'The Rights of the Reader' by Daniel Pennac whilst Year 3 and 4 had fun creating character descriptions to use in a game of guess who! Year 5 and 6 enjoyed participating in some live lessons and quizzes online, particularly the 'Footy Booky quiz'.


Our 'Story Spoon' competition was extremely popular! A story spoon is a small wooden spoon that is decorated with images or words that represent a story, book or character. Students were encouraged to use their creativity to come up with unique and imaginative designs. The competition was open to all students and winners were chosen from each year group and announced in our assembly. Well done to everyone who took part!


Overall, our World Book Day celebrations were a great success with children and teachers coming together to celebrate the joy of reading and literature. Thank you to everyone who joined in with our celebrations!
