Last week we celebrated World Book Day across the federation.
All the children spent the day making their reading and book corners more inviting and engaging with the new books they had chosen. Thank you to our partner, Norton Rose Fulbright for donating money towards this treat.
The employees of Norton Rose Fulbright will be voting for the best book corner transformations over the next few week, the winning classes will win a special prize.
Here are some of the things the children and staff had to say at Tower Bridge:
I had fun on World Book Day. We did lots of reading as this is what World Book Day is about. I dressed up as Batman! We got new books for our classroom. I felt so excited because there were books I hadn’t read and there were some I didn’t know. I took one home and shared it with my mum.
Everyone’s costumes were stunning. I was Harry Potter. He’s my favourite character. I had so much fun.
Last Friday everyone in school dressed up as their favourite book character. We had a chance to read spectacular new books. World Book Day is about celebrating all the memoires, novels, non-fiction and fiction books around the world having fun just while reading them. It is very important to read books because they can help you improve on your speech and writing during school and in life.

On World Book Day I was Mrs Twit and helped organise the book corner. We even got to make our own book marks which was so much fun. Then we coloured butterflies different colours and we got our new books. The books were delivered and wrapped up. We had Horrid Henry, Roald Dahl, Jeremy Strong and David Walliams. We all got to take a new book home to read.
Children were happy to get new books. They were excited to put their own ideas into the class book corner.
The children all looked fabulous! They enjoyed making their props to decorate the book corners.
