St. Paul's pupils and staff embraced this year's World Book Day, dressing up in a wonderful variety of costumes. Year 3 led the the celebrations in their class assembly, sharing many different stories and highlighting the value of story telling and reading. They reminded us that this tradition of story telling was used by Jesus and many of his parables and teachings are recorded in the Christian's holy book the 'bible'. We watched a recording of Year 3 in action, performing their class dance, 'Wolves in the Walls' with the Northern Arts Factory; showing how stories can be depicted through movement. Thank you to Year 3 for doing a brilliant job in raising our awareness of the importance of books and reading.
Later in the day, a 'teacher swap' allowed children to enjoy stories from different members of staff and also Year groups 'buddied up', encouraging the older pupils to share reading time with younger children. Many children succeeded in the challenge set by Key Stage 2 staff and rearranged the letters worn, to correctly identify the book 'Oliver Twist'. A great day was enjoyed by all !
