We celebrated national World Book Day on Thursday morning! We started with a costume parade for the whole school, continued by designing our own covers for our favourite books, of which some will be chosen to decorate our new library! Then we worked with other year groups to write silly and funny stories and read books together. Morah Dorit/Moreh Ofer even read us a story in Ivrit! All Tzedakah money collected will go to Book Aid International which sends books to children less fortunate than us http://www.bookaid.org/.

Year 3 worked hard in teams to recreate their own version of 'A Sunday Afternoon' using an abstract Pointillist technique. The other classes also created their own versions of Pointilism paintings. In addition the children created role plays to represent the characters in the painting.
