Last week Bablake Pre Prep celebrated World Book Day.
All Pre Prep teachers and pupils dressed up as their favourite book characters and donated £1 to Book Aid International.
In every class a specific text was selected and all lessons throughout the day were linked to the text - with lots of creative ideas being shared! The children also took part in a book swap where they wrapped up books from home to share in the class lucky dip.
On top of activities on the day the Pre Prep children were involved in a range of other activities linked to World Book Day.They sold raffle tickets all week for the children to be with a chance of winning book hampers with all the funds raised going to Book Aid. In total the Pre Prep managed to raise just over £180 from the raffle, which will buy lots of new books for children in Africa.
There was also an extreme reading photograph competition where children shared the most creative places that they enjoy reading books. Entries included pictures of children reading whilst hanging from a coat hook and sitting on a storm damaged tree!
Teachers ended World Book Day with 'The Big Read', where the children got to listen to the adults in the Pre Prep read in various places around the school. A fun filled day for all!
