World Book Day
Earlier this term, classrooms across DLAT looked slightly different, as pupils and staff showed their love of reading as part of World Book Day celebrations.
Instead of seeing school uniforms and the usual smiling faces, teachers stood in front of classes containing superheroes, villains and fairy tale princesses as children dressed up as their favourite literary characters.
For example, at Redmile Church of England Primary School, pupils celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters. With books in hand, everyone gathered in the hall to cosy up for some well-deserved reading time. The best part of the day was having the chance to share books with one another and learning about lots of amazing stories.
While at St Simon and St Jude Church of England Primary School, everyone came to school wearing their colourful and comfy pyjamas all ready to share lots of bedtime stories. At 11am the whole school gathered in groups to share these stories.
The school council also organised their annual book swap event and children were able to bring their own books to school and swap them for something different.
Russell Davies, Interim CEO, said: "At all schools across the trust we place a great importance on developing out pupils into being enthusiastic readers. World Book Day gives us a chance to celebrate all of our literary favourites and show the children the real joy of reading."
