It’s World Book Day! Marlborough area schools celebrate

Preshute Key Stage 1 pupils celebrate World Book DayPreshute Key Stage 1 pupils celebrate World Book DayToday, Thursday March 5, is World Book Day and pupils and staff at our local primary schools are celebrating in style, dressing up as their favourite book characters. 

James and the Giant Peach, Mr Bump, Mr Tickle, the Mad Hatter, the Highway Rat, Gangsta Granny, Worzel Gummidge, Sherlock Holmes, Mary Poppins and the Snow Queen were just some of the characters attending Marlborough St Mary’s and Preshute School today.

Gemma Harris, English Lead Teacher at Marlborough St Mary’s, said, “World Book Day is an excellent opportunity to promote reading throughout the school and to encourage a love of reading. The children are very enthusiastic on these days.  It gives them a chance to talk about different books and characters and encourages other children to try different stories.”

Book quizzes, an extreme reading competition where the pupils have to photograph themselves reading in unusual places and a special assembly where the children will be playing ‘Take a shelfie’ competition in order to guess the member of staff from the books on their shelf are just some of the activities taking place.

At Preshute School pupils are focusing on the book, ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker which depicts a child visiting magical places with the help of a red crayon.  The pupils are being challenged to invent a new form of transportation and to create their own Preshute journey book.

Year 5 teacher, Amanda Lewis, told Marlborough.news, “World Book Day really heightens the importance of reading, of sharing books and ideas with each other.”

Ramsbury Primary School held their World Book Day earlier in the week. The children celebrated their love of reading by writing a book review about their favourite book. The reviews are being collated into the ‘Ramsbury Recommends’ book.

Abigail Creed, Ramsbury English Lead and Year 4 teacher commented, “Reading and love of reading is a huge part of enjoying and developing literacy.  It was fantastic to see the children bringing in such a wide range of different types of books they have really loved to recommend to others.”

Other reading-related activities on the day included ‘Stop, drop and read!’ - a ten minute reading slot whenever the bell rang.  A Jackanory time was held at the end of the day with class teachers swapping classes to treat the children to story time.

Finally, every child was given a World Book Day £1 Book Token, which can be used to buy one of this year’s £1 books.
