Neston Schools Celebrate World Book Day

Published: 8th March 2018 06:56

Schools in the Neston area found various ways to celebrate World Book Day recently.

At St. Winefride's RC Primary School they had a visit from the fantastic, award-winning local author Curtis Jobling.

Curtis held talks with the children throughout the day. He introduced his hilarious and hapless zoo keeper Old MacDonald, along with 100 naughty sheep to the younger children.

For the older pupils, Curtis talked about his newest book, Max Helsing: Monster Hunter and the Wereworld series of fantasy horror novels. He told everyone about his love of film/books and animation, being the designer of Bob the Builder, and creator of Frankenstein's Cat and Raa Raa the Noisy Lion.

Curtis also drew some of his most famous characters which really brought them to life for the children. Key Stage 1 and Reception even had a go of drawing one of his characters themselves! Both the children and staff couldn't help but be entertained by his quick-wit and talent and felt inspired by such a fun, creative and talented author. The quote of the day was, in Curtis' words, ‘everyone has a book inside them'.

At Neston Primary, the theme was 'Animals' - as you can clearly see in these photos!

Meanwhile at Bishop Wilson CE Primary School in Burton, all the children and staff enjoyed a costume parade and reading activities throughout the day. The staff were replaced by Cruella De Vil and her 101 Dalmations!
