Brilliant book week at Woodpecker Hall

Book Week

This week we have had some fantastic reading inspired activities across the school for Book Week. We had parents come in to read, staff from the Trust come in to read and pupils dressing up as their favourite characters.

Parents read to classes

Starting off the week we had 14 Woodpecker parents come into school to read a book to a class as part of our book week activities. Due to the support from the Woodpecker family all classes had a parent reading to them.

CEO of the Trust reads to classes

Midweek saw staff from the Trust read a section of a book to a class. Staff across the Trust read to classes from reception to year 6. CEO of the Trust Marino Charalambous read a section of Muhammad Ali's autobiography to a year 6 class. The pupils were captivated by the story and were really interested in learning more from the story of the legendary heavyweight boxer.

World Book Day

On World Book Day itself the children dressed up as their favourite book character. There were some amazing costumes such as Harry Potter, Gangster Granny, The Joker and many more.
