World Book Day 2017


World Book Day was a fantastic celebration at Highgate Primary this year.

The children celebrated by creating a Book in a Box; a three dimensional representation of their favourite book. Each child chose a much loved book and filled and decorated their box accordingly. Some contained real life objects from stories, others looked like stage sets and one or two even had lighting. Over three hundred books were then laid out in the hall for everyone to admire. The results were truly spectacular!

To add to the excitement, the children were thrilled to hear that Highgate Primary are one of the Runners Up in the World Book Day Award 2017 for their World of Stories display, created with lots of imagination from the children and much inspiration from some parent volunteers. Thank you to everyone who gave their time and energy.
