Here's One For the Books ......

Book Week at school.


This week was Book Week at school, the first fun event we've had since covid kicked in last year. Unfortunately for me my teaching was mainly on Zoom and only involved one day with actual kids. On that day we had dress up as a book character, paint a hardboiled egg to look like a book character and a scavenger hunt in the school library. I can't put up pictures of my kids, even though they looked really cute, but I can put up ones of the staff so here goes.



We've been doing a unit on books that involve witches, can you tell? We didn't disclose our costumes to each other. So oops! Two of us turned up as Winnie the Witch and one of us turned up as Baba Yaga's house, complete with chicken legs, now that last one was pretty unique.




More witches and a Bartholomew Cubbins and the 500 hats because we hadn't all been doing witches.



It wouldn't be Book Week without a few characters from Alice in Wonderland.


We also had one of the Three Little Pigs, not sure if it was straw, brick or wood. Different year groups currently have children in on different days so it wasn't as large an event as usual, but it was fun nonetheless.

I can't put up pictures of my lovely class, but I can post some of their egg designs which I thought were really very very good. The eggs were also supposed to look like book characters. My own personal favourite was Rapunzel, but they were all great. How many can you spot?

Hi Alec, yes there's not a great deal of fun going around at the moment. I should have been vaccinated at least once by now but our vaccinations have been put on hold due to faulty packaging so it was cancelled.

What a fun school day! What costumes did your pupils wear? :)

Hi Henna, we had lots of different ones: knights, cloud fairies, Captain Underpants, Alice in Wonderland, the very hungry Caterpillar, Little Red Riding Hood, some from the Mister Men books, Jeronimo Stilton was my personal favourite.
