World Book Day – Thursday 7th March 2024

We had a lovely day on Thursday 7th March at Oakhyrst. We were treated to a fantastic parade of wonderful costumes by LKG and KG in our assembly at the start of the day. Then we all went our separate ways to complete a day full of fun book-related sessions.

The activities included designing a new sweet for Willy Wonka in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” by Roald Dahl, finding out about Paris landmarks after being introduced to “Rooftoppers” by Katherine Rundell, Olympic training after finding out about Jesse Owens from the Little People, Big Dreams series, making stick men after reading “Stickman” by Julia Donaldson and contributing to a whole school display based on “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.

Everyone agreed that we had an amazing time, doing lots of fun activities, being creative and maybe being inspired to read a new book or two.
