All children at Ramsbury Primary School took part in various activities to mark World Book Day today, including producing ‘Ramsbury Recommends’ – a book of book reviews co-authored by every child in school and enjoying a day of ‘Stop, Drop and Read!’.
To celebrate their love of reading and everything book-related, the children all contributed to make their own book entitled ‘Ramsbury Recommends…’ Every child had been asked to prepare by spending time at home and with their friends discussing books they loved, in order to choose one particular favourite that they have read over and over again. All children, from Class R to Class 6 brought the favourite book they had chosen into school to celebrate World Book Day and wrote their own book review in class. The reviews are being collated into the ‘Ramsbury Recommends…’ book, for anyone to browse for book recommendations.
We also took part in ‘Stop, Drop and Read!’, where all children and adults needed to be on red alert for the bell; whenever it sounded, the whole school had to stop what they were doing and enjoy the luxury of 10 minutes of reading. The end of the day was Jackanory time, with all of our 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.
