Children go topsyturvy for books
ALDERLEY Edge Primary School was plunged into silence when both children and staff dropped everything they were doing to read.
They were taking part in Wilmslow High School’s ‘Drop Everything and Read’ event in celebration of World Book Day.
Everyone brought their favourite book in for the day and at precisely 11am stopped what they were doing and took out their books.
From the reception class to the year six children, and from the office staff to the kitchen staff everyone downed tools to ensure they found ten minutes of quality reading time.
The children also moved between year groups and shared their favourite books with other children, with classes also taking part in book themed activities, including book mark making, hot seating, role play and writing book reviews.
Mr Perry, headteacher, said: “This was a brilliant event and although I know our children and staff love to read it was a great chance to focus on the love of reading and enjoy reading together.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed the day because the teachers planned such a brilliant set of activities for the children to enjoy throughout the day.”
