The children at High March school were very busy last week celebrating book week. There were lots of events going on including a visit for one year group to Beaconsfield Library where the children learnt about the National Year of Reading 2008.
The Book-Themed Hat Competition
On Thursday there was a visit from the author of "The Shark Who Bit Things He Shouldn't" and former writer for "Rainbow", Denis Bond. He gave a wonderful story telling session and an inspirational talk in which the children helped Denis make up a brand new story. Ella said, "I really enjoyed making up a new story it was about a pig!"
The last highlight of the week was a hat competition. The girls wore hats illustrating a book or a book character. A huge variety of hats were worn and everyone had great fun guessing the books on which they were based. Selina St John won the competition and she said, "I really enjoyed looking at the hats everybody's were really nice."
Mrs Mackay, who organized the week, said. "The girls have been really enthusiastic and lots of them have bought books from the book fair that we have held after school each evening. It has been a fantastic way to promote reading."
