Marshfields School

A Positive Choice

World Book Day 2017

More Dress Ups than ever for 2017 World Book Day


This year, we decided that we couldn’t fit our student’s love of books and all things booky into one day at Marshfields. Instead, we had a whole week of exciting and challenging activities.

On Monday, in assembly we heard from some members of staff, who read excerpts from their favourite books (with expressive voices included!)

In the afternoon, all students were given the Free World Book day vouchers, which meant they could go and get a book of their choice from a range of great authors – all for FREE!

Tuesday and Wednesday break and lunchtimes saw many of us searching for the elusive “Where’s Wally” somewhere in the school grounds, and to make it even more challenging (each break time), he kept on moving.

On Thursday it seemed like everyone was dressed up as their favourite story book character – it was an amazing sight to see the Worst Witch walking down the corridor next to Hermione from Harry Potter, followed by Horrid Henry and James Bond. We’d have liked to give everyone a prize for their imagination and creativity putting together their costumes, but the winners on the day were the cat from Dr Seuss’s “Cat in the Hat” and Albert from Michael Morpurgo’s “Warhorse”. From the staff costumes, the outright favourite was Mr Mountain’s Shrek (how long must that green face paint have taken to get off?

We rounded off the week with a great “Match the member of staff to their favourite book” game – with hilarious staff baby pictures.
