All classes took part in dressing as a book character day at Wadworth, yesterday and as usual the effort the children and their families made to celebrate the day was amazing. We had witches, wizards, superheroes, sports starts, monsters, magical nannies, carton characters, princesses, stickmen, tigers, giants, and almost everything else in between. The children had a wonderful day doing activities based around their favourite books including writing riddles to identify book characters, designing and making cakes based on scenes from favourite books, art based on stories and listening to and watching different versions of well loved tales.
