World Book Day Celebrations for Junior Girls
Tuesday, 09 March 2010
Bolton School Junior Girls celebrated World Book Day with two days of literature based activities including a Book Aid International cover design competition, book quizzes, and dressing up as their favourite story characters.
The Junior School was transformed with colourful scenes from well known tales, as girls donned a variety of costumes from Snow White and Scooby Do, to Pirates and Princesses! In addition, girls got the chance to explore books in other languages as Year 3 and 4 pupils studied The Hungry Caterpillar in Spanish - La Pequeña Oruga Glotona, reading the story and drawing pictures, whilst Year 5 and 6 pupils listened to Cinderella in French - Cendrillon, and had opportunities to act out the story.
The world of literature was further celebrated as the girls watched the film of the classic book, 'Tom's Midnight Garden' by Philippa Pearce, and with a Book Fair held at the school where they had the chance to browse a wide selection of books.
