On Thursday 4th March, in spite of lockdown, The Grange Academy celebrated World Book Day. The children - whether working in school or at home - were invited to dress up as their favourite book characters and we were so impressed with the efforts the children went to.
Through our learning during the day, we decided to celebrate the, sometimes underappreciated and overlooked, storybook villain. This was also the theme of fancy dress for the staff too! Pupils created an original storybook villain called The Story Stealer who broke into our school and stole all our stories. The children designed costumes, wrote stories and designed comic strips to tell his story.
As an extra piece of fun, the children were challenged with designing their own ‘spudtacular’ book character out of a potato! The entries that were sent into school were fantastic!
Please have a look through the photos to see some of our fabulous costumes, writing and potatoes!
