Staff and children at St Laurence CofE Junior Academy in Ramsgate have celebrated World Book Day with great enthusiasm.
The children came to school in their pyjamas and brought their favourite teddies to class. The day was filled with exciting activities, with the main focus on the book ‘Malala’s Magic Pencil.’
The children were inspired by Malala’s story and they spent the day exploring the themes of the book. They discussed the importance of education and how it can change lives. The classes then took inspiration from the book and created their own stories.
A child in year 4 said: “I love World Book Day because it’s a day when I get to share my favourite stories with my friends and learn about new ones too.”
Under the guidance of their teachers, the classes wrote their own books which will be published soon. The books will be available to buy and the funds raised will be used to purchase books for the school library.
Head of English, Sarah Mountjoy, was thrilled with the outcome of the day. She praised the children for their creativity and hard work and she was delighted to see them so engaged in the activities.
Mrs Mountjoy added: “Overall, it was a fantastic day filled with fun and learning. The children at St Laurence CofE Junior Academy demonstrated their love of books, and they showed that they are talented writers who are capable of creating their own amazing stories.”
