Avening Primary School

World Book Day

A highlight of our school calendar is always World Book Day - a time for us to celebrate the wonderful world of books. We grasp this opportunity to promote reading for pleasure, promote our fabulous school library and to transport children into the magic of an author's imagination.

As well as holding book stalls and bedtime story events, we endeavour to go the extra mile and utterly transform our school into a story setting and organise our day around a bookish theme. Recent themes have included Harry Potter, when the school became Hogwarts and the children took part in classes including Care of the Magical Creatures (complete with real snakes and spiders), Potions, Wand-Making and Quidditch; and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when our task was to find the pieces of golden ticket by completing a range of mathematical challenges including a maths trail on the School Garden.
