🦉📖 World Book Day 📖🦉 Last week we celebrated World Book Day. We came in dressed as our favourite book characters as well as bringing in our favourite book! Some of us went on a bear hunt; going through the swishy swashy grass, and through the dark and gloomy cave searching for the bear 🐻, we also read some of our favourite books throughout the day 📖 📚 On the day, some scarecrows, bears, witches, Snow White and some dinosaurs come to visit us, and some of us even had our faces painted by the bear!!!
