School went down an unconventional route to celebrate World Book Day this year, by asking the children to dress up as words rather than characters to add more of an educational element to the day.
It encouraged children to add to their vocabulary as they needed to learn the definition of the word before they could dress up as it.
This gave more of a literacy element to it as the children needed to know the definition of their word.
We had two girls come as the word identical, so they dressed the same; we had a boy come as the word espionage so dressed as a spy, and another who came as mislead and wore shorts and a T-shirt.
Thank you to all the parents who made a massive effort with the children’s outfits.
