The Gruffalo, The Cat in the Hat and The Enormous Crocodile were just some of the beloved characters that children and colleagues from Seabrook Day Nursery in Luton embodied as they marked World Book Day with a series of themed celebrations.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding Day Nursery on Lewsey Road, pre-schoolers were delighted to share their favourite stories with friends and impersonate beloved literary characters, as well as enjoy a special storytelling session to commemorate the annual event, which looks to celebrate books and encourage a lasting love of reading amongst children.
As part of the festivities, children were thrilled to welcome their resident expert and Relief Practitioner, Claire Irwin, who spoke to the pre-schoolers about her other job at Usborne Books and handed out World Book Day tokens for the children to exchange in shops.
Seabrook Day Nursery Manager, Becky Smith explained;
“We’ve had a brilliant time admiring the incredible effort that has gone into the costumes and exploring some of our favourite books across the nursery. Storytelling is not only brilliant for capturing the imagination, but essential for aiding language development, building literary confidence and helping us to understand emotions.”
World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995.
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
