Deansbrook students celebrate World Book Day
World Book Day has become a very popular day at Deansbrook Junior School, and with all the interesting activities that the students enjoyed, it is easy to understand why. The whole school, including the staff, dressed up as a character from their favourite book which proved to be varied and a source of great fun. Each of the classes enjoyed picking what was their favourite book and decorating their class door in a style that represented it.
During the afternoon a range of activities were undertaken with a strong literary theme. Year 3 enjoyed painting scenes from their favourite books; Year 4 undertook a study of Anthony Browne’s book ‘A Walk in the Park’, which involved predicting and finding clues in a number of pictures; Year 5 made a range of puppets to represent characters from their favourite books and Year 6 enjoyed ‘Drabble’, which is a challenge to create 100-word stories, written with various sense stimuli and is run by Phil Davis who has worked with the school for over a year to help develop mindfulness techniques. Here is an example
The day was a huge amount of fun and provided a different way for the students to explore their favourite books and characters.
