PUPILS in a Colwyn Bay school pupils have shared a story as part of World Book Day.

Staff at Rydal Penrhos school devised an schedule of initiatives to support the Day which took place last week and each year group took part in Share a Story. This saw them split into pairs and discuss parts of their favourite novel or book and converse with their classmates about their favourite things about it and what they would change.

Year five demonstrated their love for the written work with some poetry reading, with year one producing some impressive book reviews and even illustrated their own. There was also time for every pupil to read independently bringing their most popular or current book to class and continue their journey through their chosen novels. Some pupils even sent in some pictures of their reading in a variety of unusual situations and locations.

Alison Hind, head teacher, said: “We are always thrilled to get behind and support World Book Day, which is a fantastic initiative and highlights the importance that reading can have on a child’s overall development.

“Reading improves vocabulary, spelling and also heighten their respective imaginations, and it was heart-warming to see each year group really getting into the spirit of the occasion and producing some outstanding work in the process.”
