Local authors came to visit us too! The children were amazed to meet Mark, who owns The Sea Garden on Bexhill seafront. Mark and Barbara read part of their book, The Sea Elf and the Happy Stone, to the children and signed books. The atmospheric storytelling held the children captivated, especially since their story is set in Bexhill.
It was lovely to see the children so excited to wear their World Book Day costumes today. Straight after registration, the whole school congregated in the hall to admire each others’ costumes and posed for photos.
In class the children wrote book reviews for their favourite story books and planned and started to write stories of their own. The children loved being in role today, playing the parts of their characters, and this continued through break times too.
Thank you to Mark and Barbara for a magical storytelling session and thank you also to all the parents for making such an effort with the children’s costumes!
Year 2, what was your favourite part of the day?
