Straight after the success of our International Evening, we embraced World Book Day (with International Women's Day still to come on Friday). Children and staff wore their pyjamas to school to enjoy a lovely bedtime story. Some families stayed to share stories and books. Books are so important at Rachel Keeling: from each child's own personal learning journey, their own Special Book, to books we use every day: cookery books, information books, receipt books, story books, class books and display books.
Children and staff use books to move learning on, to develop and enhance vocabulary, to complete a task (making pancakes), to increase wellbeing (who doesn't love a cuddle and a story?) and to reflect on learning and inspire mark making.
Thank you to all our families and staff. It feels strange being in civvies today!
