World Book Day 2015

The children and staff at Wroxham have had so much fun today dressing up as a character from their favourite book. We had some wonderful outfits as you can see in the slideshow below. We also had a visit from Tamsyn Murray, our Patron of Reading, who presented Reception, Year 1, Year 4 and Year 6 with their trophies for winning the Patron’s Cup Reading Challenge.  The pupils read an amazing total of 6113 books in four weeks, Diya from Year 4 received a Star Reader award for reading a staggering 205 books!  Even though the challenge has ended don’t forget to keep reading because reading really rocks!

The children took part in two competitions, Best Bunny Ears and Best Book Cover Design. The day ended with a book signing. Everyone had a fantastic time and wore their bunny ears with pride!
