Book Week 2018

Abbey School Annual Book Week –March 2018

Abbey School had an exciting Book Week planned to promote the love of books, reading, poetry and storytelling with the children.

For Book Week this year we had a theme to our dressing up day. Children and staff came to school as a person, character, animal or item from the Bible or depict a Bible story. I introduced this to the children in Collective Worship. The children wowed me with their suggestions of coming as the Bible itself, bread and wine or the Last Supper table.

Did you know that the word Bible means books? The Bible is a book of books, sixty-six different sacred scriptures composed by forty authors. The Bible contains stories, letters, history and laws written over a period of approximately 1,500 years. The Bible is widely considered to be the best-selling book of all time, selling approximately 100 million copies annually.
