Pupils at Wandsworth Prep School took part in a wide range of literary activities, to celebrate World Book Day.
Pupils across the school, aged four to eleven years, enjoyed a broad programme of activities including a Book Breakfast and a Book Costume Catwalk. Pupils and staff spent the day dressed as characters from their favourite books.
Each child received a World Book Day voucher and enjoyed swapping books with their peers via each class’s BookSwapShop!.
Headteacher, Ms Bridget Saul, said: “Reading stories is one of the best ways to develop children’s vocabulary and help them to become confident writers, which is one of the reasons why World Book Day has a firm place in the school’s calendar. It is always wonderful to see how engaged the pupils are with World Book Day celebrations, with so many colourful and imaginative costumes on show and a genuine appreciation for books felt across the school community. Everyone enjoyed an actioned-packed day, celebrating our love of books and reading.”
