Elmhurst celebrates World Book Day

Elmhurst School for Boys

4th March 2016 | Early Years

As you may be aware it is officially World Book day on Thursday 3rd March 2016. In order to encourage the enjoyment of reading the World Book day theme is ‘Festival of the imagination - turning millions of kids into millions of readers’.

During this week, our overall aim is to get all the children excited about books. So, we will be undertaking various fun activities throughout the entire week under the theme of ‘Share a GOOD read’.

On the Friday 4th March, it is a Mufti day. All children came to school in their pyjamas brought their favourite teddy and story book to share with their class during our ‘Share a GOOD read’ lesson.

All boys also enjoyed a book-themed, professional dance workshop. Read the views of boys about the Dance Workshop:

"On Friday 4th March 2016 Darren the West End dancer came to teach us how to dance to the Pirates of the Caribbean and we loved it because there were so many actions and we had to shout ‘Aaargh’ several times. It was the best and I really want Darren to come back again. Miss Frois we really appreciated you inviting Darren. Thank you!"
Lucas

"I really enjoyed the dancing with Pirates of the Caribbean music. I enjoyed the dramatic contrasts in the piece and the rapid action. You should come again and teach us more! Thank you Miss Frois and Darren."
Thushan

"I really enjoyed the dancing with Darren especially being a pirate. The stage was the ship and the back drop was the sail. This dance was based on Pirates of the Caribbean and has inspired me to dance more! Thank you Miss Frois and Darren!"
