Today, the children and staff all dressed up to celebrate our love of reading for World Book Day. The children made an amazing effort and were excited to tell us what book character they were dressed as. Year 2, 3 and 4 spent all morning looking at Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In Year 3, we read a few chapters from the book and focussed on the part where the children enter the ‘Chocolate Room’. We explored what each contestant was like, and the children thought of some excellent adjectives to describe each contestant’s personality. After break, they wrote a diary entry, as if they were one of the contestants entering the chocolate room. The children were so enthusiastic about the activity, and it was lovely to see the excellent writing they produced independently.
