Oh, history day - thankfully we're not doing that one!
Yesterday, World Book Day, ds1 had to wear a hat decorated like a favourite character from a childrens' book. We (for we, read I!) made a fantastic Cat in the Hat hat. Lots of the children went with ready made hats - saw a few Woodys, Bob the Builders, etc. Those well known characters from childrens' literature
My two went to school yesterday as the Worst Witch (school pinafore, tights with stars on, cloak and hat) and Blodwyn Gonzalez Jones (a character from a Welsh book called "Viva Cymro", who basically dresses like a cowgirl). This was for World Book Day.
My children had to decorate a hat of a favourite book/author!
DD1 (8) decorated her hat in "Dr Suess". She added a large "Grinch", "Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham".
DS1 (6) decorated his hat in "The Gruffalo". When he showed his teacher, she asked what his book was, so he told her. She hadn't heard of "The Gruffalo" (???) so he took the book in this morning and she read it to the class!
Can't believe a Primary school teacher hasn't heard of "The Gruffalo" but I'll make allowances - she is very young (22!)
