On World Book Day, the pupils of Poringland Primary School and Nursery were invited to take part in a ‘bookfest’ organised by ‘Book Bugs and Dragon Tales’, a bookshop in Norwich. This event featured some wonderful book related activities and information that could be accessed online.
In Year 2, Home Learners solved clues to fairy stories; made book marks; read their favourite books and some children dressed up.
In school, we acted out ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and used Bee Bots to get the ladybird around the farm
Finally, we joined together in the afternoon to meet author Margit van der Zwan, who read her book “Gordon and the flying piano” via Zoom. It was great fun – Margit’s watercolour illustrations are vivid and amusing and she also sung us a song about Gordon. The afternoon finished off with the children asking Margit questions.
