Little Trinity Nursery Enjoy World Book Day

Children at Kidderminster’s Little Trinity Nursery shared a wonderful week and dressed up as their favourite book character to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 5th March.

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter, said: “Each class throughout the week focused on their favourite stories.

“Yellow Bumble Bee room enjoyed 'Going on a Bear Hunt' and 'Dear Zoo' whilst our Red Ladybird room enjoyed reading ‘The Enormous Turnip’, ‘Elmer’ and ‘Who am I asked the Butterfly?’ with activities including going on a minibeast hunt, looking at the butterfly lifecycle and preparing a butterfly garden ready for the baby caterpillars when they finally arrive in a few weeks’ time.”

They also enjoyed story sacks and mirror play, looking at similarities and differences as well as taking part in role play activities using facemasks and using the 'Bear Hunt' tuff tray for small world play as well as enjoying a Superhero themed lunch.

In a week-long celebration of books, ninety-four children took part with the highlight being children and staff dressing up as their favourite characters on World Book Day.

Added Gaynor: “We celebrate World Book Day every year because language, literacy and communication is such a vital part of a child’s learning and story time is very often their favourite time of the day.

“Encouraging reading and enjoyment of books is part of our weekly activities, with our lending library offering the children a chance to choose a book that they can then take home and share with their families. World Book Day is a great excuse to simply have fun, share stories, enjoy a favourite book and dress up. What an amazing week!”
