New Hall Primary School
New Hall Primary School: Love to Learn

This year for World Book Day St Mark’s did something different and new. Instead of dressing up as our favourite book characters we dressed up a word.

As vocabulary and language is something we are developing as a school it was so great to see so many new words to develop children’s understanding. Each class did a vocabulary parade and recorded any new words in our Magpie Books.

The whole school focussed the day around the story book Tuesday. We completed a range of different tasks which included:

  • Newspaper reports
  • Wanted posters
  • Drama
  • Interviewing key witnesses
  • Our own stories with predictions of what might happen next Tuesday
  • Diary entries from different viewpoints
  • Stories with flashbacks

We had a fabulous day focussed all around our love of reading, language and fun.
