World Book Day

World Book Day was a very busy day in the middle of our Children’s Book Week celebrations.  Our theme was enjoying books and stories from around the world and on WBD we were lucky  to have 10 Japanese students join us to teach us skills in the Japanese language, origami and calligraphy.  They also acted out a well-known Japanese folk tale for us all.  We also enjoyed listening to well-known stories being told in different languages and some classes spoke about books, via Skype, to classes in Africa or North America (thank you Mrs Bremner).  Our quote for Children’s Book Week was “Books are a discount ticket to everywhere” and we certainly did use reading to travel all over the globe this week.
