World Book Day

World Book Day takes place in March each year and at Cherry Garden we like to mark the occasion with a range of book related events. This year every child (and adult) came into school dressed as their favourite book character - we had everyone from Harry Potter through to The Little Mermaid. As the doors opened, parents were invited into class to read alongside their children - thank you to everyone who joined us. During the day children spilt into their coloured houses to visit another class for story time. At the end of the day we held our own book fair, selling new books for just £1 or £1.50 - almost everyone bought at least one book (and some people bought lots). Later that evening, the children came back to school in their pyjamas and dressing gowns to settle down for a bedtime story (and a mug of hot chocolate). It was a fantastic day!
