Year 5 World Book Day 2017

We started the morning by everyone in class explaining who they were dressed as and what their favourite book is.

Here are some examples.

Miss Charles: “Guess how much I love you is my favourite children’s book because it has really lovely illustrations and the words have a really emotional meaning.”

Rajveer: “Mine is Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban because is it really interesting and descriptive!”

Bailey: “I like the World War 2 non-fiction book because it has interesting facts and photographs.”

Renae: “Mine is Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban because you find out that it is not Sirius Black that told Voldermort where his parents were!”

Kiedis: “Mine is Minecraft Annual 2016 because I really like Minecraft.”

We then played a game of guess the character, made a bookmark and made our own book.

Great morning Year 5, well done everyone.
