World Book Day 2011

To celebrate World Book Day many of us dressed up as characters from our favorite books.

We also had a very special BOOK X FACTOR Assembly!


There were high jinks in Year 6 - with Harry Potter (J K Rowling)casting spells all day!

In Year 5 there were some 'older' characters. The Ghost from The Mirror Image Ghost (Catherine Storr), Tom the Chimney Sweep from The Water Babies (Charles Kingsley)and Carrie from Carrie's War (Nina Bawden).


Classical characters from Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll) were to be found in Year 4. There were Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, The White Rabbit, A Queen and Alice herself!

More classical characters caused confusion in Year 3, with TWO Heidis! (Johanna Spyri).


There was a 'Rural' theme in Year 2. Robin Hood (Howard Pyle) and Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie (Laura Ingalls Wilder).

Children's favorites were to be found in Year 1 with The Worst Witch (Jill Murphy) and The Gruffalo (Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler).




The costumes in Early Years were very realistic!

We managed to find Wally from Where's Wally?(Martin Handford)

and a very convincing 'look alike' for Zoe the Fairy

from the series of books by Jane Andrews.


In the afternoon we had a very special BOOK X FACTOR assembly.

Each character tried to persuade us that their story was the best!


We listened to The Fairy from Prince Cinders (Babette Cole) who really needs to practise her spelling!

We felt very sorry for the poor Prince.

There was also the Little Princess from Lullabyhullaballoo (Mick Inkpen).

Poor thing, she was so frightened that she couldn't sleep.


Then there was Winnie the Witch (Valerie Thomas & Korky Paul) who has still not improved her spelling since last year!

An old favorite joined us next.

Mummy Bear from Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Fairytale). She was very upset about the porridge that had been eaten and the broken furniture she had found in her house.


Finally, we were joined by an elderly lady, who claimed that she was the rightful owner of Sid from Six Dinner Sid (Inga Moore).

She brought several of her other cats with her as well!


Time for our judges, Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole to make up their minds who the winner was.

First prize was awarded to a surprised Mummy Bear! They decided she deserved to win for keeping children entertained with her story for such a long time.

Well done Mummy Bear!
