As in previous years, World Book Day has been a great success and was enjoyed by both children and staff. The range of costumes on show was excellent and thanks are owed to all of the parents who made this possible! The day was a wonderful opportunity for children to be excited by new books and characters, as well as to be inspired in their own writing. Throughout the day, children took part in a range of creative writing activities and competitions, such as ‘best character profile’ and ‘most imaginative monster.’
Furthermore, we were able to welcome Amy Sparkes, a local author from Tiverton. She has so far published four children’s books and as working on a number of others that are due to be released soon. She read some of her stories and spoke to the children about her love of story writing. There were also opportunities for the children to ask questions, in order to improve their own story writing, which many found helpful. If children wish to contact Amy to ask further questions, a messaging service is available on her website (www.amysparkes.co.uk).
Lastly, all of the children have been given a £1 book token, which can be used in a range of bookshops. These can be used until the 30th March.
Thank you to all of the children, parents and staff who made the day possible!
