All our Reception children dressed up as Pirates and other characters from their favourite stories to spend a day celebrating books. They listened to stories in a specially themed story telling gazebo, parents visited, bringing with them their own favourite story books to share, and all our children were delighted to be read to by their older Year 4 buddy. There was a book themed treasure hunt as well as the opportunity to make a bookmark to take home.
Our Head teacher, Denise Mawdsley, said, “At Weare Academy we want to encourage a passion for reading, sharing books and story-telling in all our children, even the very youngest. Events such as these add to the rich curriculum we provide at our school'.
