We invited 'West End in Schools' http://www.westendinschools.org.uk/ into school to spend a day with all our children. Every one of our pupils took part in a dance workshop, putting together a routine inspired by Simon's wonderful picture book.
So the day was full of dressing up, laughs, fun, dance and enjoyment but, above all it was a celebration of books and reading - the core part of what schools are all about.
''I loved seeing the children's (and teachers') costumes today. It has been a great way to celebrate world book day and it was clear that all of the pupils had a great time. The dance workshops really brought our key text to life - we're very grateful to 'West End in Schools' for the excellent work that they have done with our children'.
''We never underestimate the power of books and reading as a fundamental part of teaching and learning. At its best, teaching (and storytelling) is close to real magic.''
