Book Week!

posted 2 May 2017, 19:52 by Primary 4 Teacher

This week we have been celebrating 'Book Week'!

We started the day on Tuesday dressed as our favourite book characters then showed off our outfits to the whole school in a fashion parade.

This was followed by an amazing assembly in which we met book author and illustrator, Chris White. He read some poems to us and shared lots of pictures. 

Later in the week we attended 2 workshops with Chris and he helped us creator our own characters and poems with illustrations. 

To end the week we displayed the children's poems from each Milepost in the hall and did a walk round to share learning across the school. 

Have a look at our photos to see more...
