Today we celebrated World Book Day by participating in D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read)
We brought picture books/novels from home and carried them wherever we went. At several random times throughout the school day, the bell rang and all pupils and teachers dropped everything to read for a few minutes.
P1Patterson had to drop everything in PE …..P7Marshall had to momentarily abandon their ICT lesson….Mrs Sterritt and a group of pupils were en route to the library when the bell rang and they had to sit down outside the staff room to read!
Some classes also took up the challenge and embarked upon “The Great Cairnshill Book Character Hunt”. We found and identified the 20 book characters who were hiding in the green hall. Some of the KS2 classes were even able to name the authors who created these characters!
Today, we had great fun reading, talking and learning more about the wonderful world of books.
Remember to use the £1 book token you received today! You can spend these in our travelling book fair in school next week.
We look forward to seeing you there!
