All of our Junior House pupils have enjoyed a book-themed activity within their year groups which has culminated in a celebration finale on Thursday. Year 3 and 4 pupils had a ‘Blind date with a Book’ activity when they arrived in school and were presented with a wrapped mystery book. They then talked about their expectations from just looking at the front cover versus what they felt after reading a couple of chapters. Year 6 girls chose to design and create a hot air balloon based on the theme of their favourite book. Laila chose ‘Ways to be me’ by Libby Scott and Rebecca Westcott and described how she could relate to the characters in the book, “I like lots of drama, so my hot air balloon is bright and bold”. Niamh chose ‘Boy at the back of the Class!’ and the passenger in her hot air balloon included a little girl, instead of the ‘boy’ in the title. World Book Day is a lovely opportunity to dress up in fancy character dress or non-uniform for the day and Westfield girls have enjoyed talking about and sharing their favourite books in their own unique and imaginative ways.
