World Book Day in 5CR
Date: 7th Mar 2023 @ 9:26pm
We had such a fantastic day on Friday celebrating books! The day started with an assembly on cushions and rugs arranged around a stage so everyone got the chance to parade their costumes. The year 5 staff dressed up as characters from a midsummer night's dream. The children really seemed to enjoy my donkey head! It was so lovely to see so many children expressing their passion for a wide range of books - some I'd never even heard of!
Back in the classroom, we explored our focus text - the Rabbit Problem by Emily Gravett. Its a story about a lonely rabbit in a field who meets a 'friend' and very quickly, their family becomes far too big for the field. We imagined what it would be like for the farmer owner of the field watching each month as the population grew. There was some excellent drama as a result and we wrote our ideas as comments on a facebook group where the farmer had asked for help. There were some interesting ideas, for example teach the rabbits to dance and enter them on Britain's Got Talent, make a rabbit stew or form the world's first entirely rabbit football team!
In the afternoon, we buddied up with year 1 and the children shared some stories with them. It was absolutely adorable to see but I'm afraid I can't share the photos due to privacy permissions.
It was a packed day but certainly fun and I can't wait for World Book Day 2024!
