We stepped through the portal this morning into the ‘Different World’ of Book Day at Gayhurst. Characters such as Gandalf, Alice, The Cat in the Hat and, of course, Harry Potter all enjoyed a day of lessons based on our theme. What a fantastic selection of costumes! As well as lots of reading throughout the day, activities included: creating video trailers for books; designing bookcovers and bookmarks; quizzes; creative writing about adventures through the portal; sharing books with Junior School; creating treasure island maps and t shirts designing. House assemblies also included an insight into other dimensions such as ‘Gibbs World!’ Hopefully the day, along with the book fair, book swap and Readathon will continue to encourage children about the wonder and enjoyment that can be had from books.
