Wellspring Goes All Out For World Book Day!

15 Mar 2021   |   Elizabeth Hudson

World Book Day might have had to be a little different this year but lockdown didn’t stop Wellspring schools celebrating in style. Whether at school or at home, there was no shortage of fantastically creative and engaging efforts to mark World Book Day.

Across lots of our schools, pupils got dressed up as their favourite characters from much loved books and shared pictures online of their amazing efforts.

At Victoria Academy, pupils in school were visited by a life size tiger in reference to The Tiger Who Came To Tea, whilst over at Greenacre, staff were replaced by Snow White and her seven dwarves – and there was a rather tasty-looking poison apple pie to enjoy.

Pupils in school at Bramley Park marked the day by becoming ‘Super Reading Heroes,’ and made masks, capes and talked about all the reading super powers they could have. They also held a ‘Book in a Box’ challenge, with pupils creating some stunning representations of their favourite books in a box at home and sending in pictures. Some brilliant examples included Alice in Wonderland, Jurassic Park and The Christmasauraus.

At Phoenix Park, there was a visit from Iron Man, whilst Ebor Gardens enjoyed an Alice in Wonderland theme with some fabulous outfits and a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Oakwell Rise pupils were taught by The Boy Who Lived – Harry Potter!

Springwell Leeds held a potato head competition where pupils had to make their favourite characters, enjoyed marshmallows and story time round a fire pit and more. Finally, Springwell LC put together a truly fantastic video. Have a look and see how many of your favourite books you can spot… https://twitter.com/i/status/1367532515184021508

Well done to everyone for making World Book Day as special and exciting as ever across the Wellspring community.
