It really was a fabulously Finton World Book Day this year.
Pupils and staff alike showed their creativity and personality through their World Book Day costumes this year (everybody knows that Fintonians love an excuse to dress up); from Willy Wonka to Madeline and from the Gruffalo to Gangsta Granny, we really did see it all! As is tradition, the Lower School, Middle School and Upper School all enjoyed parading in front of each other in the playground, clapping and cheering for each other’s costumes.
This year the whole school were treated to an assembly and class workshops with our visiting author, Sylvia Bishop, and illustrator Ashley King. Pupils were delighted to meet the author of much-loved books such as Erica’s Elephant and The Bookshop Girl, and even more so to ask questions to Ashley about being an illustrator. One great query was: ‘What comes first, the words or the illustration?’
