In conjunction with World Book Day on the 1st of March the boys' school held Book Week to celebrate reading and the wealth of knowledge available in books.
All kinds of fun activities were held including DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) when the bell rang at spontaneous times each child had to stop what they were doing and read. There were competitions and dressing up as well as storytime each day. Eli guessed the quote for The Very Hungry Caterpillar correctly on Tuesday and Joel got the quote right on Wednesday which was from Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
Today all the children were allowed to dress up as their favourite book characters and Joel chose Tintin and Eli The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Despite Eli being really upset about his costume, it just wasn't up to his exacting standards and we guess was lacking in the kudos of wearing pants on your head to school, they both won prizes for being the best in their classes. So proud of them!
Book Week finishes this evening with movie night, the boys can't wait to go back to school for this and we can't wait to have a couple of hours without them.
Well done ISH for another brilliant Book Week!
Another stunning flower in our garden. No idea what this is but it's simply gorgeous!
