Snow delays World Book Day fun
Pupils at a Valley primary school celebrated World Book Day one day later than planned after it was forced to close last Thursday due to the adverse weather conditions.
The Foundation Stage class at St Joseph’s RC Primary School and Nursery in Hurst Green enjoyed activities focussed on Aliens Love Underpants, with children and staff coming to school with their “underpants” over their clothing and wearing alien head dresses which they had made themselves.
Many children also brought their favourite book to show to their class mates. Key Stage One focussed on the book Claude in the City, and brought in their “side kick” soft toys.
Meanwhile, children in lower Key Stage Two focussed on books about fish and fishing as they are caring for trout hatchlings in their classroom. Upper Key Stage Two were lucky to travel to London earlier in the week to watch Matilda, so enjoyed World Book Day activities centred around the Roald Dahl book.
