Last week pupils at King’s House School in Richmond took part in a huge array of activities to celebrate World Book Day.

Pupils in the Junior Department and Nursery enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters and showing off their costumes, which were really excellent! In the Nursery, parents were also able to come in and read to their child in the mornings all week, and it was wonderful to be able to welcome them in again after Covid-19 restrictions.

Mr Gower and Mr Turner also judged The Great Book Bake Off in the JD, after each class had made a cake based on a book. This included Reception’s ‘Disgusting Sandwich’ and Year 3’s Harry Potter themed treats. We were also treated to a parade of costumes in the JD, where each class showed off what they were wearing.

Year 8 boys also went down the JD to read to Reception, Year 1 and 2. There, they read two stories called “Shark Puncher” and “Daphne and the Doughnuts.” All of the younger boys clearly enjoyed being read to by the Year 8s. It was also particularly fun to see all of the boys wearing their costumes in celebration of World Book Day.
