World Book Day

The 25th World Book Day happened on Thursday 3rd March and everyone came into school as crazy characters from loads of books and some even came in as books! 

Both sites had a parade showing who everyone was and we celebrated these great winners:

For Pre Nursery the winners were Ivan who was the Cat in the Hat and Misha who was the pink Fairy. 

In Nursery, the winners were Santiago and Kriton

Reception winners were Jude and Zia

Form 1 winners were Beatrice and Alex

Form 2 winners were Molly and Rosa

In Form 3 the winners were Charlie G and Kiana. 

The winners for Form 4 were George who dressed up as Bertie from the Butterfly Lion, and Ruby who dressed up as a dictionary. 

For Form 5 the winners were Una who was No Face from Spirited Away and Milly who was the Queen Of Hearts. 

In Year 6 the winners were Daniel who was ‘The Book Of Daniel’ and Izzy P who was Oliver Twist. 

We also had an amazing time meeting the author and journalist, Ben Lyttleton who signed some of his amazing football books for the people who had purchased them. Mr Ashton got up to samba with him and we also enjoyed the quiz between Izzy P and Miki where we all got to shout out to help them!

There was also a Footie and Bookie quiz with Ben online where we all got into teams and tried to answer the questions that were all about football and books. The winners of the quiz in Year 6 were Matthieu, Aaron and Sam.w tied with Nathaniel, Antonio and Xander.

Overall World Book Day was a very memorable time!

The Big Norfolk House WBD Book Drive

For World Book Day this year, we did a Big Book Drive and collected any pre-loved books for children who needed them across London as we always try to help our community. The Heads of Library (Lois.N and Daniel.T) went out and collected books from parents and children before school on the week of World Book Day and we were given lots of bags. We also had some help from the Senior Prep Book Club members and all of 6O who helped package and carry the books. 

In the end we collected 650 pre-loved books which was an amazing effort and we received a lovely certificate and handwritten letter of thanks from The Children’s Book Project who collected and distributed the books for us.

Well done everyone for promoting the message of ‘you are a reader’ to children far and wide who will now get to keep and read your lovely donated books
