World Book Day on Thursday 7 March saw Sibford School students and teachers dressing up, taking part in themed activities and even a murder mystery in the library!
Children at Sibford Junior School took part in a vertical learning session, where students from reception, up to year 6 were split into groups to work through set book themed activities. These included getting outside to complete the Gruffalo trail and a dance class where children could get creative and rein-act parts of famous books such as The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, through the medium of dance. Some students also had the opportunity to visit Jaffé and Neale Bookshop in Chipping Norton to explore the books and listen to some readings.
The theme for this years fancy dress was ‘Myths and Legends’ and both our students and teachers wowed with their creative outfits! Students also had the chance to solve the murder mystery in the library by following clues to track down the culprit who left a body for our Librarian, Frances to find!
A fantastic World Book Day and we look forward to what is in store in 2020!
