KSA Book Day 2018

KSA Book day – a belated Word Book Day celebration:

KSA Book day – a belated Word Book Day celebration:

Yesterday KSA pupils and staff enjoyed belated World Book Day celebrations, with some very creative costumes on display from children and staff alike.

The day started with a whole school assembly led by 6B who put on a brilliant author quiz, discussed their favourite books and gave some in depth book reviews. The assembly culminated in a parade of costumes by each class.

The assembly was followed by a ‘whole school read.’ It was marvellous to see the children embrace the meaning of World Book Day and enjoy some time ‘lost’ in a good book.

As part of this literary celebration we ran a competition to discover the most unusual places our pupils have read. We have had some excellent photographic entries, ranging from a ski lift to the kitchen sink!  All entries will be displayed in the library shortly.

As part of our celebrations we also asked pupils to bring in any unusual, old or interesting pieces of literature they might have at home. Staff we very impressed with some of the pieces they have been shown.

It is wonderful to see the children develop a passion for reading and celebrating World Book Day has been a fantastic way to encourage this. Well done to all the pupils (and their parents) for getting in the spirit and producing some well thought out costumes and competition entries!
