World Book Day


The snow may have stopped many in their tracks, but the show went on at RSP and pupils trudged through the drifts dressed as everything from fairies and Superman to Emmeline Pankhurst, although most children looked like Scott of Antarctica on arrival!

The weather didn't dampen anyone's spirits and pupils and staff celebrated World Book Day with a day of exciting literacy based activities. Everyone dressed up as their favourite book character and the days events started with a catwalk to show off their super costumes!

During pupils designed a bookmark for a competition and discussed their book characters with other children. Pupils could also choose to listen to various story reading sessions throughout the afternoon. The children also enjoyed many other interesting activities in their classes.

This annual event is always very popular with the children (and staff, who appear to like dressing up and getting into character!). Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and we feel that is an excellent way to continue to promote reading and the value of books in education.
