World Book Day
What a day! Firstly, we must congratulate the Birkdale boys for the dashing and daring efforts they made with their costumes. Amongst others, there were plenty of Harry Potters, Thing 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5! There was Captain Hook, The Big Bad Wolf and even The Boy in the Dress!
It was wonderful to be able to celebrate books and reading in a number of ways. One of the highlights of the day was when a group of Prep 3 boys came to read a range of specially chosen picture books to the Pre-Prep boys. Their mature and professional approach to group story reading was impressive, and the younger boys really enjoyed hearing different voices reading aloud to them.
The Prep boys have had an exciting week starting their twisted traditional tales and are looking forward to the visit from the illustrator, Steve Smallman.
