Today everyone at Westfield Infant School have been celebrating World Book Day. There has been lots of learning and fun this morning in school with everyone dressed as their favourite book characters.
In the afternoon we were visited by the local author Claire Cope who talked to us about her book 'Veronica and the Magic Spell Book'.
Can you remember the name of Veronica's pet?
She told us how she dreamed of being an author one day and wrote a book when she was at school.
Can you remember how old she was?
After a few years she found her book and the children in her class encouraged her to try and get it published. After lots of persevering her dream came true and her book was published and sold in lots of shops!
We learnt to never give up on our dreams and to keep trying to make it come true.
The Year Two children were very lucky as Claire asked them for some help. She has been asked to write a new book and needed some help to think of some ideas! Claire was very impressed with the children's ideas and how creative and imaginative they were.
Well done Year Two!
We have all had such a wonderful day celebrating Authors, Illustrators, Books and of course Readers!
This Years theme is 'share a story'. Even if it is just for a few minutes, sharing a story is such a special thing to do with someone.
Who will your share your next story with?
Thank you to all the grown ups for your support with this day.
