New Invention Junior School...The Masked Reader....!!!! Click above...
2023 - As part of World Book Day celebrations this year, we had local Author and Illustrator - Bec Tonks - visit school. She completed workshops with children in all year groups on building characters and how these can be used in stories. Children also looked at how authors/illustrators turn ideas from their stories in to bookmarks. There has been some super work and all children enjoyed it!
Children have held Book Blankets / Campfires within class and everyone was asked to put a book inside an envelope so we can't judge books by their covers. All children were able to engage in meaningful Book Talk - and they loved it!
We also made a Reading Escape Room and the usual dress up activities happened! Look at all the fun we had!
World Book Day
As always, there was a fantastic turn out of book-inspired character costumes for World Book Day. Which characters can you spot??
The staff have loved getting involved in World Book Day celebrations!
