World Book Day 2022
World Book Day Learning and Fun at VWA
World Book Day is celebrating 25 years this year! At Violet Way, to celebrate World Book Day 2022, our learning in school this week will be based on nursery rhymes and poetry. Our daily story time will be focused on Nursery Rhymes. The children will read and recite lots of different rhymes and, on Friday 4th March, they will be able to vote for their favourite as a class. The children will then have a week to rehearse their chosen rhyme and then perform it in front of the school in Merit Assembly on Friday 11th March!
On World Book day (Thursday 3rd March) children and staff can come into school dressed in their pyjamas. They will start the day with milk and toast and a bedtime story! On this day, children should bring in their own book from home and there will be a class circle time about their favourite bedtime stories - they'll need to keep their book in school for two days.

The children spoke and we listened.....
When Mrs Kee did a 'Pupil Voice' about reading and asked what we could do at Violet Way to make reading better, the children told her that they wanted her to read them stories, other teachers to read stories to them and they wanted more books in school. We listened and, on World Book day, the teachers will swap classes to read to different year groups! Mrs Kee will be reading a story to every class over the next two weeks, our brand new library will be having a grand opening and we have a fund raising game to raise money for new books - Thank you for the brilliant ideas children!
The staff at Violet Way have also taken the time to record themselves reading bedtime stories. A video of a different member of staff reading a story will be uploaded every day this week. The stories will be rhyming stories - see if you can identify the words that rhyme!
