Purford creates 'The Masked Reader' for World Book Day!
We celebrated World Book Day this year in style by creating our own competition for the children called ‘The Masked Reader’.
Our members of staff disguised themselves as different characters and read excerpts from their favourite books. The children then had to work out who was behind the mask. The staff were very imaginative with their disguises and the masked characters ranged from a talking frog to Darth Vader. The children had great fun guessing which members of staff were behind the masks and excitedly discussed the books.
Deputy Head, Mrs Thomson said: ‘We wanted to create something fun and memorable for World Book Day this year. Our Creative Arts Leader, Mrs Duncan came up with the idea whilst watching the popular singing show, ‘The Masked Singer’. We knew this would capture the imagination of our children as well as promoting a love for books and reading for pleasure.’
