Sefton Park has gone all out today to celebrate World Book Day. Children arrived at school dressed as their favourite book character and found parts of the school decorated to resemble aspects of well-loved stories. From superheroes to spies, princesses to pirates, animals to aliens, our infant and junior children rose to the challenge and were treated to a special assembly this morning celebrating children’s literature.
“A huge thank you to all parents and others who have supplied costumes”, said Dan Simson, Deputy Head.
From the pictures below, can you spot well-known characters such as the Cat in the Hat, Harry Potter, Fantastic Mr Fox, Mr Twit, The Tiger who came to Tea, or the Queen of Hearts? Or perhaps you can spot your own classroom door among the many 'story doors'.
We were delighted to hear that our participation in a Guinness World Record simultaneous quiz challenge has been successful. Sefton Park made up 192 of the 6388 people who took part in the bumper literature quiz on 22 February 2016 at over 62 locations worldwide. For more details, visit http://www.worldbookday.com/quiz/
“Today has been a wonderful celebration of books”, concluded Dan.
