World Book Day

At Jessop we celebrated World Book Day by focusing on different authors and reading from a variety of books. We invited parents and carers to join us on this special day by visiting their child’s classroom during the morning.  Across the whole school we all read together.

The children took part in various fun and creative reading and writing opportunities to really promote a love of books and of reading not just for pleasure but also for a purpose. Children read not only with their classmates but with children in different classes. They where given an opportunity to share and read various books.  The adults also read and shared their favourite children’s books.


Here are a selection of photo’s and quotes:

  • I think It was really good to have the chance to read with my child in class this morning It was a lovely experience.
  • I enjoyed Sitting with my daughter and taking part in listening to her read. It was also nice to see so many other parents and children involved. It was a lovely experience and It would be good to do this again.
  • “I really enjoyed listening to my son and nephew read.”
  •  “It was lovely to involve the parents and I’m sure all the parents would have enjoyed the experience.”
  • “I enjoyed it. I definitely would love to do it again sometime soon. My child really wanted me to come in and I am glad I did.”
