Book Day 2008

Monday saw the rescheduled Book Day which was postponed at the end of last term. Pupils engaged in a number of 'bookish' activities throughout the day, which included a visit by author Sarah Brennan.

P5 pupils visited the ICT room and had the opportunity to view a number of film trailers of children's books that have been adapted for the big screen. The ones viewed were taken from a variety of online polls asking 'Which is the best adaptation of a children's book?'
Whilst the classic Watership Down remains a firm favourite, two adaptations I haven't seen yet, but which I'm planning to after yesterday's session are Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce, (although the novel was written after the film was made) and Holes by Louis Sachar.

To top off a great book day and in a triumph for creativity over Pottinger Street commercialism (!), the best staff costume was won by The Iron Man.... ME!!! Hurrah!
