World Book Day
This year for world book day we decided to embrace the message buy a book not a costume and instead of dressing up as a character from a book, we brought in our favourite book from home to share with the other children in our class. In Year 5 we had a morning centred on books. We continued to read our class guided reading novel ‘oranges in no man’s land’ thinking about the character of Ayesha and summarising what had happened in the story so far. We then thought about what happens when books are turned into movies and how often parts of the books are left out or scenes are added depending on the audience. In pairs we tried a mini casting audition putting together a short scene from a book which was going to be turned into a film. We then played ‘snappy reviews’ as a class. With the book we had brought in we had to tell a partner as much information about that book as we could before the bell sounded and we changed partners. We made note on a ‘reading list’ of any books and authors we were drawn to as we went around, creating our own must read list. We also wrote book reviews of our favourite book to add to our book review library. Also as a whole school we wrote a story. It sarted in Nursery and made its way to us before we passed it on to year 6. Mrs Mason read the previous parts of the story and we had to write the next section. An added challenge was that each teacher had brought an item from home, which needed to be included in the classes section. Mrs Mason had brought a teacup which was harder than we first thought to add in. We enjoyed listening to the whole story again in assembly and seeing where it finished with year 6. It was also interesting to see what the other teachers mystery objects were.
