World Book Day

3.3.23 Heron Hill children enjoyed a day of reading and fun throughout school.

Nursery had a wonderful afternoon celebrating World Book Day. They all enjoyed listening to and joining in with the story ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and were immersed into the story by going on their own bear hunt in the nursery garden. The children travelled through the long wavy grass, the deep cold river and thick oozy mud. There was even a swirling whirling snowstorm with bubbles floating in the air. Once they entered the big dark forest, the children moved carefully amongst the branches and crunching leaves. All of a sudden, amongst the trees, they saw a shiny wet nose and two big furry ears…it was a bear! The children had a fantastic time bringing the story alive.

Through the rest of school teachers moved classes to read their favourite children's story to a different year group. Mr Murphy (the previous Headteacher) donated £5 book gift tokens for the winning book cover competition winners. The winners were celebrated in assembly. The book swap was a huge success! Children swapped books and spent time in our new reading areas throughout school. Thank you to all the parents who sent such high quality books in. Some children have asked if they can do this more regularly.
