Hesketh House Becomes 1920's Paris for World Book Day
Thursday, 07 March 2013
Imagine a busy train station, the Gare du Nord perhaps, in Paris, the period, late 20’s, early 1930’s. The hustle and bustle of trade, transport, shopping and the people who are all part of this scene. The sounds and the smells. Imagine! As part of World Book Day Celebrations at Hesketh House, the pupils and staff transported themselves to that time and that place using Brian Selznick’s novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret as the inspiration for the day!
What a colourful and imaginative array of costumes the pupils adorned to make the celebrations even more special. They engaged in a story telling activity in assembly from the story, then watched the film, Hugo, based on the book and are now in the process of designing inventions, just like in the book. Lunch too, was a thoroughly French affair. A memorable day all in all!
