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
- 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.
