What do a football, lightsaber, frog and a rubber duck have in common? They were all among the curious objects brought in as literary references by James Calvert Spence College students for World Book Day.
On Thursday March 5th, students at the school’s South Avenue site got in the mood for sharing stories by bringing in objects as clues to their favourite books.
Year 5 and 6 students and staff all got in the literary spirit, bringing in a truly curious collection of items that fuelled lots of guessing and recommendations of different books and authors.
World Book Day takes place in early March every year, it is also a charity funded by publishers and booksellers in the UK & Ireland.
Alongside in-school celebrations, school children receive a £1 National Book Tokens voucher to spend on or put towards, a book of their choice.
Alison Nicholson, Primary Improvement Lead at James Calvert Spence College, said: “Our students really got into the share a story message of World Book Day this year. The objects the children brought in got everyone talking about which books they liked best and the thought that had gone into some of the more obscure objects was amazing.
“The focus of the day was sharing favourite titles and authors, giving the students lots of ideas about what they might like to spend their World Book Day voucher on.”
