We celebrated World Book Day in 4th Class by doing lots of different book related activities. ‘Mystery Book’ was one of these activities. Mystery Book teaches us not to judge a book by its cover. For homework, we chose a book from home; making sure to cover the title. We then wrote a blurb like summary on the cover. We had to make sure the summary would not give away the title of the book. We then all got the chance to choose a book that someone brought in just from reading the summary. We were all surprised as the books we chose were books we would not normally choose.
On World Book Day we had a special Reading Buddy session with Senior Infants. They brought in their favourite book from home and we read the books together. Some children from 4th brought their narrative story that was written in class to the Senior Infant children.
