Pennypot Day Nursery children celebrate World Book Day
Complete with a creative writing session, children and colleagues from Pennypot Day Nursery in Chobham were delighted to dress up as their favourite characters and take part in a range of special activities as part of World Book Day celebrations.
Paddington Bear, Wonder Woman and Winnie the Pooh were just some of the beloved literary figures impersonated by pre-schoolers from the day nursery on Pennypot Lane to commemorate the annual event, which looks to celebrate books and encourage a lasting love of reading in children.
As part of the festivities children took part in a helicopter story session, dictating their stories for practitioners to write, before sharing them with the group during prime times. Across the setting pre-schoolers also explored story sacks, character puppets, themed tuff trays and role play games to support the books being shared.
Pennypot Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Anna Jackman explained;
“Each year we look forward to seeing the children’s incredible costumes and listening to their ideas and imaginations has been magical. We have had a brilliant time exploring some of our favourite books, and this presented endless opportunities to be creative. Storytelling is not only essential for capturing the imagination, but building literary confidence and communication skills too.”
World Book day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995.
