World Book Day 2019

What a fantastic World Book Day we had on Thursday! Greenfields Primary School & Nursery welcomed World Book Day with a fun filled day based on all the teachers’ favourite books.

Bright and early, Tom Percival from BBC Radio Northampton arrived to see us because he heard that we “go all out” with our World Book Day celebrations. Tom was not disappointed when he entered the school doors to be welcomed by Mrs Tyrrell-Smith dressed as the Enormous Crocodile and Mrs Appleby dressed as Cat in the Hat. Whilst having a conversation with Mrs Tyrrell-Smith about the day, he was surprised to see a mole with a poo on its head walking down the corridor (of course, it was Miss Kenny). Tom’s morning got better and better as he interviewed Domile & Ugne from Year 6 (dressed in their Harry Potter cloaks) and Jamie & Jamie from Year 4 (dressed as Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Pikachu!) I’m not sure much more could represent the wonderful eccentricity of Greenfields.

You can see the highlights Tom’s visit to Greenfields in the video that BBC Radio Northampton posted on Twitter: https://twitter.com/BBCNorthampton/status/1103684056254943232. 

The school day then began with a very lively assembly where Mr Hughes was awarded best dressed adult with his fantastic homemade replica of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Following this, there was a child’s competition where prizes were given to the best homemade costumes. Winners were Thomas Rochester (dressed as Mr Bump), Harry Liffen (dressed as Mr Stink), Isabelle Craddock (dressed as Alice in Wonderland stuck in a house) and Harley Miller (dressed as a Minecraft character). Children were all awarded with a brand new book to take home.

Following this fantastic start to the day, the children immersed themselves in a range of activities around the school from different books. These included; Lord of the Rings, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, The Rainbow Fish, The Mole who knew it was none of his business, The Princess and the Pea and We’re going on a bear hunt. Children’s highlights were making magical potions, eating ‘poo’ and having a Mad Hatter’s tea party!
