Book Week – March 2023

Book Week 2023


Another amazing week here at Nadeen School – we have been celebrating all things books! 

Book Week benefits the students on so many levels. It is an exciting opportunity to be part of this global event that takes place all around the world. It was a wonderful time to get children excited and prepared for a fun-filled week that will take them on a journey through reading/illustrating/storytelling and much more.

During the week we hosted our English Book Fair. There were some wonderful books on offer and all children visited to browse and even buy some books of their own. We also had the ‘story walk’, which is a creative way for children and adults to enjoy reading while spending time outdoors in nature and following along to a story to create an interactive storytelling experience. Popped up around the school grounds we also had ‘Guess the Character’ using the shadow of famous characters such as Where’s Wally! Students enjoyed the Book Maze, where they had to guess the titles of different book pages to get out of the maze – this was a great collaborative challenge and involved lots of thought and discussion. Our students in Year 3 participated in a reading bank challenge where students enjoyed reading and collecting book coins for every book that they finished. There were some children that read over 20 books during the month! Finally, we had the reading corner in the back garden, there was a chance to immerse ourselves in the outdoors and read. The fun didn’t stop there as we continued our library sessions during the week enjoying all the storytelling and learning about the book parts, making a book, and reading out loud some of Dr. Seuss books in honour of Dr. Seuss Day! 


We wrapped up Book Week by celebrating World Book Day which saw all of our students and staff dress up as their favourite book characters. We had some Mr. Men and Little Miss, the Colour Monster, Harry Potter, famous footballers, Dr. Seuss characters, and a few superheroes from comic books too! We held our morning parade so that our parents could enjoy the range of costumes and characters that came to school that day!
