World Book Day 2023

Wow what a wonderful day we have had!

The school was full of pupils dressed as authors, books characters or looking very cosy in their lounge wear or pyjamas!

Pupils started the day meeting author Bemma Akyeampong, who shared her story of becoming an author. They even learnt to sing a Ghanaian song about a turtle!

After, classes took part in different activities, to promote a love of reading and feel the excitement a book creates. Not forgetting the knowledge that is promoted too!

Southwold Stops for a Story – National Storytelling Week

Staff at Southwold Primary started National Storytelling week off by sharing their favourite stories with their classes.

National Storytelling Week takes place every year and is a celebration of the power of sharing stories. Stories teach us about the world, they allow us to step into someone else’s shoes and feel empathy, they help us to relax and escape and they can help develop essential literacy skills.
