Southfield Primary School

 Reading Festival 

This year's reading festival was another resounding success. We had a spectacular performance of Alice in Wonderland from the wonderful Hobgoblin Theatre Company followed by a week of workshops based on our novel studies this year. We had Charlotte's Web, The Wind in the Willows and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory to name a few. For our arts and crafts activities the children made matchbox designs of their favourite books covers in Key Stage 2 and wooden spoon book characters in Key Stage 1. Once again, the children all made a huge effort to dress up for World Book Day with prizes being given for the best dressed, judged by Dr. Jones. We also held our first annual Bedtime Books for EYFS and Year 1 where the children came back to school in the early evening in their pyjamas and were treated to a cosy bedtime story by their teachers along with some biscuits and a cup of warm cocoa. All in all it was another fantastic celebration of reading.
